It is learned that Colonel Aung Kyaw Lwin, the commander of the 99th Division, an attack division of the Military Council, was killed in the Panlong Battle of Northern Shan State. This is the first time a commander has been killed in battle since the military coup.
The Panlong strategic hill was attacked by the soldiers of the Rakhine army, and the strategic hill was captured. Referring to the captured prisoners of military council, the Arakan Army confirmed that the 99th Division commander had been killed by a drone bomb. This was the first time a division commander had been killed in combat after the military coup. Previously, It had fallen to the rank of battalion commander several times, and now It has risen to the rank of division commander. The next step is the turn of the division commanders.
On the side of Laung Kai, a battalion of the Military Council and the family surrendered. Including the battalion commander, more than a hundred soldiers and their families, more than 200 people came to surrender. It must be said that the battalion commander had a brain.
