Two women and a man suffered minor injuries from regime shelling after the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) attacked a Burma Army (BA) camp in Mongpaw (aka Mongbaw) area in Muse Township, northern Shan State.
The attack happened two days after the BA killed many civilians in a bomb attack on a concert in Hpakant, Kachin State, marking the 62nd anniversary of the KIA’s political wing, Kachin Independence Organisation.
A male source, requesting anonymity, said the BA shelled KIA positions from their camp at 105-mile on 25 October.
“Two shells landed in Zay village, but only one exploded and the shrapnel injured the man and the two women.”
He said one of the women and the man had head injuries and the other woman suffered an abdominal wound. They’re all being treated at a clinic in Mongpaw. The shell that didn’t detonate landed in a house and the family who live there are afraid to remove it. They’re currently sheltering in a bunker dug out by the villagers.
