Karenni State, in the battle to seize the city of Mae Se, the revolutionary groups won and took control of the city. The last remaining military council in that city was the battalion commander, The entire battalion, including the lieutenant commanders, surrendered. The exact number is unknown, but reports say that more than 100 forces surrendered. The rebel forces were unable to send reinforcements to the battlefield in time, and were surrounded by the revolutionary groups, so they finally had to surrender. During the Spring Revolution, this was the first time the battalion was attacked by the army. Later, there were opinions from the military side that the surrender of regiments may continue, but it is not as easy as it seems. They would surrender if they had no choice but to die like this. To achieve that situation, the revolutionary groups must try in every battle.
In any case, the victories achieved in the Mae Se region are sweet news for the Spring Revolution. First, the local border guards defected. Then the rebels had to surrender. We can control the entire city. There are no such cases in Kachin, Karen and Rakhine, which have large EAOs. Karenni State’s military growth rate is very fast.
