The military council troops bulldozed the Ta Aung message and flags erected in Ta Aung village in the TLNA area of Lashio Township, Northern Shan State. They even said that they will take action if they build again. In the MNDAA area of northern Shan State, the fighting is going on again because the military has crossed the border. These incidents happened after the collapse of the three northern armed groups and the military council earlier this month. The military council did not listen to them, so it put pressure on those groups. It is for this reason that local and foreign groups that are doing storm recovery in Arakan, where the AA group is, have been banned from traveling. The ethnic armed groups will not take care of this. The military council is no longer in a position to do whatever it wants. Even so, they still want to bully the ethnic armed groups.
