State Administration Council Information Team Leader Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun Provides Updates on Ongoing Armed Conflicts and Measures Taken by the Tatmadaw

Ministry of Defense/ Nay Pyi Taw / November 21, 2023

The State Administration Council (SAC) Information Team Leader Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun provided updates on the ongoing armed conflicts in Shan State (North), Rakhine State, Loikaw of Kayah State, online scamming and rumours about the banking operations as follows –

· From 15 to 19 November, MNDAA/TNLA groups launched attacks including drone strikes on the No. 290 Infantry Battalion in Tamoenye, and military outposts near Shin Khut Htan, Hopan, Namtsalat, Chinshwehaw Laukkai. Fire exchanges broke out and the enemy retreated with heavy casualties at every engagement.

· In Namt Phat Khar, MNDAA and TNLA terrorist groups fired motors into the public wards and civilian casualties were reported. In Kayah State, terrorist attacks in Loikaw have faced multiple failures by the insurgents. Measures are taken to ensure the security and safety of the Mandalay-Muse Union Highway which is critical for the people and the State.

· From 15 to 19 November, AA groups with an exceeding number of strengths repeatedly attacked the security outposts of Tron Ai, Nonebu, Donenyo, Pauk Taw local police station, Kalihta police station, Kotan Kauk outpost. However, due to the gallant and resilient defensive attacks of the Tatmadaw personnel and police force members, the enemy retreated with heavy casualties.

· For the same duration from 15 to 19 November, in Kayah State, Loikaw prison and court were attacked and burnt down. Moreover, the police outpost at Chaung Hna Khwa Bridge was also attacked and set fire. There were also engagements in Moebye and Demoso.

· Regarding the transportation situation on the Mandalay-Muse Union Highway, 12 locations were destroyed by TNLA and PDF terrorists. Repairs along the road have been completed and will be extended.

· Combating online fraud is merely a reason for the current developments in the Kokang area. To achieve democracy is just a lie. The root causes of the conflict are the Pheung/Yang crisis, power games between Pheung Kya-shin group and Yang Moelyan families, and their hatred towards U Bai Xuoqian who was part of the Koekang administration mechanism.

· MNDAA and their alliances carried out measures to cause instability in the northeastern part of Shan State, manipulating the firm decision of the Myanmar and Chinese governments to eradicate online fraud.

· A total of 1017 Chinese nationals including 935 males and 82 females, who had lived in the border areas from 23 October to 19 November, were handed over to the Chinese Government after investigations as per relevant laws.

· Our government is actively cooperating with China for the stability and law enforcement at the border areas.

· A cache of arms and ammunition to be delivered to the KNPP and PDF terrorists doing sabotages in the Kayah State were confiscated together with the suspects in Pinlon town.

· Although rumours regarding the fuel oil appeared in the previous week, after the Government released the statement on the fuel oil, the rumours disappeared. 

· Again, rumours appeared claiming that cash shortages occur in banks and cash withdrawals are being limited. In this regard, we assure the sufficiency of money.

· Every citizen is provided insurance for their deposits, transfers and withdrawals of their money from any bank officially recognized by the State Government.

Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun added that the Tatmadaw leadership including the Head of the State have always recognized and respected the activities carried out by the security forces, military officers, Tatmadaw personnel, family members, Myanmar Police Force, and responsible citizens for their contributions to national defence and security duties. He urged the entire population to assist and support in the efforts to eradicate terrorist acts.
