Kyainseikkyi, 4 November

Two civilians were killed and nine others were injured in the clash in Karen State’s Kyainseikkyi Township, and some homes were also damaged, according to the Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG).

The fighting occurred when the allied resistance forces launched attacks on regime bases and outposts in Kyainseikkyi under the territory of KNU Brigade 6 in the early morning of November 2.

The junta army responded to the offensive of resistance forces by firing artillery shells and conducting air strikes, said the KHRG.

The junta shelling killed two civilians and wounded nine others, destroying some houses, according to the report released on 3 November by the KHRG.

The joint forces of the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) launched simultaneous attacks on the Kwee Lon Taing military outpost and Kanelay outpost in Walley near the Thai-Myanmar border, including Kyainseikkyi on 2 November.

The junta army suffered casualties while the deputy commander of resistance forces lost his life in Kyainseikkyi battle.

Besides, a comrade of the Special Operation Group was killed in the attack on Kwee Lon Taing camp near the Thai-Myanmar border, said the SOG.

On October 23, the KHRG reported that after regime troops from the 44th Division entered the Minanat village tract of Kyaikdon Town in Kyainseikkyi, one woman and three men were forcibly taken away to be used as human shields.
