Terrorist groups, including KIA, TNLA, and PDF, launched attacks aimed at undermining government administrative mechanism by destroying critical infrastructure such as roads and bridges in Shan State (North) and Sagaing Region.
Since 18 January, these groups have committeed attacks on security posts in Momeik, Shan State (North), resulting in civilian casualties, extortion, and the destruction of essential facilities including hospitals, schools, residences, and government buildings.
Responding to the escalating violence, Tatmadaw troops conducted counter-terrorism operations, bolstered by reinforcements and supporting fire of artillery and heavy weapons. Following 16 engagements, the Tatmadaw successfully regained control of Momeik on 27 January, prompting the terrorists to scatter towards the north, northeast, and east of the town.
The Tatmadaw’s operations have been conducted within the bounds of established rules of engagement (ROE), necessitated by the terrorists’ targeting of civilian infrastructure and their use of civilians as human shields. Several security personnel made ultimate sacrifices, while the Tatmadaw seized arms and ammunition, terrorist bodies, and explosive devices.
The aftermath of the attacks has left significant destruction in Momeik, prompting the Tatmadaw to initiate efforts to remove landmines and debris, facilitating the town’s rehabilitation process. — MNA/NT
