KIA/TNLA attack govt troops

Government troops came under attack by about 60 members of the KIA and the TNLA joint forces while conducting area clearance operations in Muse Township at about 4:30 pm on Friday.
As government troops repelled the attack, the armed groups retreated to the southeast at 6 pm in the evening.
About four hours later, approximately10 members of the KIA attacked a tollgate near the Oriental Hotel in Kutkai. Security forces responsible for the road returned fire and the armed group withdrew to the west.
Government troops were also attacked by the armed groups about 7,000 metres to the west of Mongpaw Village yesterday morning until the government troops returned fire, prompting the armed groups to withdraw to the west at about 7:15 am.
During the clashes, some of the security forces were injured, officials said. Several rounds of ammunition, a backpack and a guerrilla uniform were seized by the security forces.
Government troops are conducting clearance operations in the areas.
