It’s been a month since the KNU attacked and captured Lettkhet Taung near Myawady town. During this month, the military council troops have attacked at least 10 times to regain the area, but they have not even been able to get near the foot of the mountain. Due to the bombardment by the military council troops, many Monestic buildings on the mountain have been destroyed. In the military lobby area, they are saying that they will get Lettkhet Taung today and tomorrow, but on the actual ground, only the military side is in the final stages.
According to an information source from the military, operations in Karenni and Karen State are being directly handled by a general trusted by Min Aung Hlaing in Nay Pyi Taw. That’s why we have seen the use of armed force and air support to a great extent lately. It is a matter of pride to be able to hold Lettkhet Taung for more than a month under such conditions.
