Burma-Myanmar: Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) rebels shell Myanmar’s troops in northern Shan State
A battalion belonging to Myanmar’s military and a people’s militia office in Shan State was shelled by the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) on Saturday, but no one was injured, military spokesman Major General Zaw Min Tun told The Irrawaddy.
The battalion was hit twice and the people’s militia office was attacked with an RPG, said the Tatmadaw (military) spokesman.
“It has been long since they attacked the battalion and outposts. But they are carrying out attacks these days. We confirm that the attacks were carried out by the TNLA,” he said.
The TNLA shelled a military battalion from near Namkhaing village around 2km west of Kutkai at 4pm on Saturday. Around 11pm the TNLA and Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA) jointly hit the people’s militia office in Tarmoenye with an RPG.
