The Shan State Army-South (SSA-S), the armed wing of the Restoration Council of Shan State (RCSS), a signatory group of the nationwide ceasefire agreement (NCA), clashed with the Burma Army on Wednesday afternoon in Panglong in southern Shan State.

The clash broke out between SSA-S troops and the Burma Army’s Light Infantry Battalion No. 246 at 12 p.m. near Nam Hsai village, around 10 miles north of Panglong, and lasted for half an hour, Lt-Col Sai Ngai, a RCAA/SSA spokesperson told The Irrawaddy.

“Clashes broke out after about 60 Burma Army troops entered our area without prior notice,” he told The Irrawaddy.

The SSA-S did not sustain any casualties or injuries, and there were no civilian casualties or injuries, he added.
