Kokang, 19 November
The Three Brotherhood Alliance reported on November 17 that they are implementing the first phase of the operation throughout Myanmar as a ‘Nationwide Operation’.
They said the capture of regime bases and outposts one by one in Sagaing, Mandalay, Kachin, China and Kayah, including Kokang, Ta’aung and Rakine, where heavy fighting is taking place, is the first phase of a nationwide operation.
Since late October, the three twin alliances have launched Operation 1027 to protect the lives and property of the people, gain more control over their region, and root out the military dictatorship, which is the expectation of the entire Myanmar people.
MNDAA spokesman Lee Kwar Win told Than Lwin Times, “We will proceed according to the operational objectives.”
It is reported that the alliance is working with the allied forces to completely occupy the operational targets and resettle in their homelands.
Furthermore, the Brotherhood Alliance has taken positions in twons where the junta’s administrative mechanism has fallen and is carrying out public safety and rescue operations.
After more than 20 days of operations, the resistance forces occupied six towns in northern Shan State, more than 150 regime bases and outposts, border guards and some police stations in Rakhine State, two towns in Sagaing Region, and border towns and military camps in Chin and Kayah States.
U Than Soe Naing, a military and political analyst, noted, “As the third line of this operation, they can move to the level of a large-scale offensive across the country, targeting the cities.”
He added that if the operation reaches the time when the military headquarters is targeted, all the columns of the revolutionary coalitions will be able to march to Nay Pyi Taw.
At the moment, fighting occurs in northern Shan State, Sagaing, Mandalay, Chin, Kayah, Rakhine, Karen and Mon States, as well as on the Taungoo-Thangdaung road in eastern Bago.
After the Operation 1027, launched by the Three Brotherhood Alliance, spread throughout Myanmar, the military council was subjected to the massive offensives of the revolutionary forces and was in a situation where it could not fight back.
The junta army, which suffers heavy losses on the ground on a daily basis, uses civilians as human shields, violating international law and committing war crimes.
