Over a dozen troops are lost by the Myanmar Junta in four days of fighting back.

The People’s Defense Forces (PDFs) and ethnic armed groups (EAOs) increased their attacks on government targets throughout the nation during the past four days, costing the junta in Myanmar over a dozen soldiers. There were reports of incidents in the states of Rakhine and Kachin, the regions of Magwe, Sagaing, and Tanintharyi, as well as in Naypyitaw, the administrative seat of the junta. The Arakan Army (AA) reported that on Thursday, fighting worsened in Ponnagyun Township, Rakhine State, as they stepped up their efforts to take control of the junta’s Light Infantry Battalion 550 headquarters in Ponnagyun town.


On February 23, the AA launched an onslaught against the military headquarters. The junta heavily shelled and launched airstrikes to protect the military bastion during the conflict on Thursday. According to the AA, it is almost ready to take control of the entire battalion headquarters. On the Kyein Chaung-Yan Aung Pyin Road in the northern part of Maungdaw Township on Wednesday, AA forces engaged in combat with a military unit consisting of eighty junta personnel. At the scene of the battle, AA troops took control of military equipment and ammo as well as the bodies of seven dead soldiers. The ethnic army claimed that as the remaining junta soldiers ran, AA troops pursued and attacked them.


According to reports from local Kachin media, the ethnic Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and Kachin Region PDF began their coordinated attempt on Thursday to take a crucial hilltop camp in Tar Ma Khan Village, close to the jade town of Hpakant in Kachin State, from the junta. In order to protect the base, the junta used two fighter jets and a Y-12 aircraft to launch airstrikes and bombardments on Thursday. Since Tuesday, the KIA and other opposition organizations have been attacking the junta base.
