State Administration Council Information Team Leader Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun Makes Explanations to Respond to Fake News/Disinformation and Ongoing Armed Conflicts in Shan State (North), Kayah State and Rakhine State

The State Administration Council (SAC) Information Team Leader Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun provided updates on the spreading of fake news and disinformation by subversive media outlets, and the ongoing armed conflicts up to 22 and 23 November as follows –

  • Subversive media agencies have spread rumours of being taken for porter jobs since 21 November. He denied any such actions and the Tatmadaw have not even called veterans and retired police members for services. They also made propaganda news to claim military columns stationed at schools in Yangon.
  • The MNDAA formally ordered local people to forcibly serve armed services for one person per household. Moreover, they had recently captured 26 Buddhist monks from Hay Moe Lon Buddha missionary school at Monekoe town and with four of them allegedly recruited forcefully as soldiers. They also fired heavy weapons at 105-mile post and 13 improvised rockets into the Laukkai town.
  • AA group took positions at the public houses in Pauktaw town after driving off the locals from their houses. After that, they spread propaganda as if they attempted to evacuate the hostages held by the Tatmadaw.
  • Combined forces of MNDAA, TNLA and PDF terrorists launched drop bomb attacks on the import car depot in Kyinsankyawt at the Myanmar-China border trade post. 120 out of 258 cargo trucks were burnt down and destroyed in these attacks.
  • There were engagements at Nansalat, Monekyat and Tarmoenye areas in the northeastern part of Shan State, a prison and a fire brigade department in Kayah State, and Tron Ai and Nonebu security outposts in Rakhine State.
  • The engagement continues for two weeks at Nansalat area in the northeastern part of Shan State. As the Tatmadaw military columns were reinforced, the enemy reportedly suffered heavy casualties. Moreover, small clashes broke out in the vicinity of Laukkai town, and seven improvised rockets fell and exploded in the town.
  • KNPP opened fire into the residential wards of non-military targets in the vicinity of Loikaw town of Kayah State. As a result, around ten thousand of IDPs from Kayah state arrived at the Pa-O ethnic areas in the southern part of Shan State adjacent to the Kayah State. At present, shelters and IDP camps are being arranged with the joint efforts of Pa-O locals, PNLO groups and the Government.
  • At Naung Po Aung in the northwest of Sagaing region, armed clashes broke out between SNA (Shanni Nationalities Army) and the combined forces of KIA and PDF. KIA and PDFs are creating conflicts between the ethnic groups rather than attacking the Government and security forces. Their actions are obviously towards the utter devastation of the country.
  • Regarding the ongoing armed conflicts in the country, subversive media agencies, receiving assistance from Western countries, are attempting to create misunderstanding between China and Myanmar after the bilateral relations deteriorate.
  • Regarding the attacks on the import car depot in Kyinsankyawt in Muse, the terrorists instantly spread propaganda news claiming that the Tatmadaw fired heavy weapons at the depot.
  • Locals already knew who attacked the car depot and who extinguished the fire outbreak, and there were also witnesses there.

Major-General urged the entire population to join hands with security force members to annihilate the insurgents with the dogma of destruction for the peace, stability, security and law enforcement of the country.
