The fighting with both groups occurred in northern Shan State’s Kutkai Township.

The Burma Army clashed with the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) on Tuesday, despite a unilateral ceasefire declared by the military until April.

KIA information department in-charge Col Naw Bu confirmed the fighting to NMG, but said that he had yet to receive a detailed report on the incident.

“From civilian sources, KIA battalion No. 8 under Brigade 4 defended itself against an attack by the Burma Army. The clash lasted a few minutes,” he said.

According to Col. Naw Bu, the clashes occurred in a KIA-controlled area in Kutkai Township, northern Shan State.
