KIA attacks, sets fire to private fuel bowsers; terrorism accelerated in Tanai


The KIA attacked and set fire to two private-owned fuel bowsers with a capacity of 3,000 gallons of petroleum each at 2 pm on 19 May in Kachin State.
KIA’s firearms shot the bowsers between Zanan village and Suyan village in Sumprabum Township, Kachin State, while they were on the way from Myitkyina to Putao town to transport fuel to Tine Kyaw filling station.
The fuel trucks were destroyed by fire. One of the drivers was shot and now under medical treatment in the township hospital.
Similarly, KIA attacked the Yuzana Company’s Cassava Factory yesterday morning near Bangkok village, Tanai Township, Kachin State. Due to the attack, the factory’s fence, two garages, one machine warehouse, four residential buildings, three staff houses and one vehicle were damaged.
Some media outlets that support illegal terrorist groups have reported that KIA fired at a convoy carrying Myanmar’s military jet fuel, but the reality showed that private fuel bowsers were targeted, leading to fuel shortages and high commodity prices.
It is reported that security forces are stepping up security in the area. – MNA
