Tatmadaw Military Columns Defeat KIA, TNLA Groups and PDF Terrorists, Demine the Areas in Moe Mate (Mong Mit), Shan State (North)

KIA, TNLA and PDF terrorists have launched attacks with massive force on Tatmadaw’s security outposts in Kachin State and Sagaing Region. They also have attacked security outposts in Moe Mate (Mong Mit) Town and committed various acts of violence since 18 January. Therefore, the Tatmadaw military columns conducted counter-terrorism operations with reinforcement and artillery/air support on terrorists. During the operations, the military columns retook Moe Mate (Mong Mit) on 27 January after 16 armed engagements and have continued security measures in the vicinity of Moe Mate (Mong Mit).

During the armed clashes, some security personnel died and got injured in battle but they captured some dead bodies of terrorists together with heavy weapons, small arms, ammunition, mortar shells and explosive-related materials.

KIA, TNLA and PDF terrorists transformed residential houses, religious buildings and departmental buildings into their bunkers. Under the cover of those buildings, they attacked and committed acts of violence that wrecked many buildings in the town. Security personnel are systematically working to demine the areas in the town by street to prevent public casualties, and are making arrangements to restore the wrecked building in the town, in collaboration with the locals.
