While the terrorist leader Min Aung Hlaing was arriving in Baan, another military council column was attacked by the KNU in the lower township of Lain Pyi Gyi in Karen State, killing many officers and capturing them alive. The column was attacked on its way back to Myawati Walley, where the fighting had been fierce the previous month. About 20 weapons were confiscated.
Now, the fighting has spread in Karen State, except for the area around the capital city of Bana. The KNU is not only in Karen State, but also in Mon State, except around Mawlamyine. Min Aung Hlaing’s security convoy was attacked in Mon state yesterday. In addition, KNU and PDF are fighting together in every Tanathari. The southeastern part of Burma has gradually narrowed the area for the military council.
