Tatmadaw responds to KIA attacks on civilian infrastructures in Kachin State

Kachin Independence Army has not only refused to accept the efforts of the government and Tatmadaw for everlasting peace but also blown off non-military infrastructures like roads and bridges in Kachin State to undermine the administrative mechanism.
In blowing up railways, the KIA blew up the 120-foot long Bridge No 555 on Myitkyina-Mandalay Railroad, two miles to the north of Morhan Village in Mohnyin Township on 17 April 2021, the 320-foot long Nanchwin Bailey Railroad Bridge about 800 metres to the north of Ngamile Village in Kyargyikwin Village-tract on 6 October 2023, the 80-foot long Yaypoutkyi railroad bridge about 2,500 metres southwest of Myotthitkalay Village in Hopin and the 40-foot long Nanthaya Railroad Bridge on 7 October 2023.
Similarly, they blew up the 50-foot long concrete Tawetchaung bridge on the Mohnyin-Hopin-Mogoung-Myitkyina between mile-posts 356-367 4,000 metres north Hopin and 20-foot long Tawetchaung Railroad Bridge on 27 April 2021, the 50-foot long Paungnet Chaung Bridge between ward 2 and ward 3 in Shwegu on 4 May, Kaukkway creek concrete bridge between Chaungwa Village in Katha Township and Minkyaunggon Village in Shwegu Township on 9 May 2021, and the 60-foot-long steel-frame Bailey bridge No 722 on the Myitkyina-Mandalay road near Naungpon Village in Nankway Village-tract in Myitkyina on 30 November 2021 and launched ambushes on security forces along the routes.
The destruction and blow-up of non-military infrastructures like public railroads, highways and bridges used by the travelling public cause difficulties for travelling of the national races and a lot of damage to the regional development.
Moreover, Tatmadaw has repeatedly communicated to the KIA not to attack its bases during the peace negotiation period, the KIA ambushed the small bases commanded by platoon-level forces overwhelming forces and the KIO vice-chairman Gun Maw himself inspected the posts.
Moreover, although it has been informed not to be involved in the ongoing clashes in Shan State (North), it was found that the KIA has ignored the warnings of Tatmadaw and has engaged in the clashes.
Moreover, it is learnt that the KIA has been building arms and ammunition factories near the Myanmar-China border, using the arms and ammunition in their violent acts, providing them with destructive and violent acts and promoting domestic terrorists beyond the scene.
As a result, Tatmadaw has to reportedly take measures to respond to preventing such violent acts and will carry out necessary measures to respond to terrorist attacks that harm the public and attacks on security posts as necessary. — GNLM
