In the north of Shan, while the three brothers are still fighting to take over the city, the AA and PDF joint forces announced that they have opened a new battlefront in the town of Htee chein on the Kachin border of Sagaing. The fighting has been going on fiercely for the past few days in the city of Htee Chai, and now it has been officially announced. Today, Kachin KIA seized an important army base of the military council on Myitkyina Vanmao Road. The military council said in exasperation that they could no longer tolerate the KIA. The military council is no longer capable of responding militarily to the KIA. What they are doing is to be afraid of the aerial bombardment and killing of civilians. In other words, the 1027 operation expanded from northern Shan to the Sagaing Kachin border.
In the north of Shan, the alliance groups have taken over military council camps one by one, and have reached Nung Cho, a town on the border between Mandalay and Shan State. It is known that the city of Nungcho was surrounded by the revolutionary groups, and the rebels in the city fled to the army battalions outside the city. Nung Cho City is only about thirty miles away from Pyin U Lwin City, where the army’s main military academies are located, so the Military Council was quite shocked. Pyin Oo Lwin is already in Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar. By keeping Nungcho, the Military Council’s military commander Lashow, both Mandalay side and the mountain side can no longer send reinforcements. Lashio will be automatically surrounded. It is known that the Military Council is sending reinforcements to the Lashow Airport today. But those reinforcements must be able to keep Lashio from falling. The military side has not yet been able to launch a counterattack.
