It is reported that Tatmadaw reoccupied the Kyapazetgyi camp in the Hway Pon Laung-Kauk Kauk region of Kayah State at noon after they made a tactical retreat in good order for a while as a large-scale terrorist group of KNPP and PDF launched a surprise attack on the camp where measures are being conducted by Tatmadaw to protect the region on 7 January in the morning.

The KNPP and so-called PDF terrorist groups attacked the Tatmadaw’s Kyapazetgyi camp, where security forces are undertaking the measures to protect that area in Kayah State, using small arms and heavy weapons. However, the security forces members made a tactical retreat from the camp for a while and conducted a planned synchronous counterattack on terrorist groups with air and fire support.
