Around 65 junta soldiers have been killed in the last three days during intense firefights with resistance forces in Chin and Kayah states and Sagaing Region.
On Monday, the Chin Defense Force-Mindat (CDF-Mindat) said it attacked a junta convoy returning from Matupi in Chin State inflicting heavy casualties.
A CDF-Mindat commander told The Irrawaddy that the group ambushed the convoy at close range, killing around 10 junta soldiers and another 20 in a mine attack.
He added that there might be more casualties as the front of the convoy was also attacked with mines. CDF-Mindat has repeatedly ambushed the convoy of over 70 vehicles, including two tanks, while it has been traveling on the Mindat-Matupi Road.
