This month, a new front was added for the military council, in southern Tanintharyi Division. In the past, there have been occasional minor skirmishes in the area, but this month, the events have intensified. From the northern city of Ye, there are more and more clashes in Dawei and Palaw. The southern part of Kawthaung is still calm. Tanintharyi Division is also part of the KNU Brigade territory. If the KNU and PDFs can be merged to form a new front in the area, it will put more pressure on the military council.
