Laiza, 2 November
Military council announced on the night of October 31 that it carried out appropriate counterattacks against the Kachin Liberation Army’s ammunition manufacturing sites and storage facilities based on reports from key informants.
On the morning of October 31, the joint force of KIA and AA captured the Gang Dau Yang base on the Myitkyina-Bahmo road in Kachin State, where the junta army had been stationed for a decade.
According to the military council, the area was close to the border, and the neighboring country was informed in advance of the attack, which was carried out with restraint.
However, the military council did not provide details of the attack on the ammunition warehouse of the KIA in the statement.
Than Lwin Times tried to reach the KIA information official, Colonel Naw Bu, for comment on the junta statement at least five times by telephone, but it was unanswered.
After losing the camps, regime forces fired heavy weapons continuously around Laiza from noon to night on October 31, and four helicopters bombarded the area, according to local news agencies.
Colonel Naw Bu, KIA’s information official, told Than Lwin Times that six civilian houses in Jar Hta village were burned to ashes due to the junta attack.
According to the statement of the military council, the military regime informed the Peace Talk Creation Group about the attack on the Le Lon camp on the Myitkyina-Bhamo road by KIA on October 6.
The military council has twice warned the KIA not to destroy public roads or commit terrorist acts, and if similar acts are committed again, the junta army will end its tolerance and take appropriate action, according to a statement of the military council.
On November 1, a junta aircraft bombed the vicinity of Laiza, and an explosion occurred near Alum Bum Hill, according to local residents.
