Must read

Three people, including two children, lost their lives when a State Administration Council (SAC) jet fighter dropped a 500 lb bomb on a village in Namhsan Township in northern Shan State on Sunday.

U Sam Nor and his two children were killed instantly as the shell struck their home around 11 pm, according to a woman from Namhsan. Six women and a man sustained injuries from the attack in Myo Thit.

“Over 20 houses were destroyed by fire in the village during the airstrike,” she said.

Despite no reported clashes in the general vicinity, SAC also shelled Koon Hay with artillery from its base in Namhsan town, the woman reported.

In another incident, SAC troops in Pang Hai, located in Namtu Township, reportedly shelled Mong Yin on Saturday, causing damage to a home with artillery.

Since Brotherhood Alliance launched 1027 Operation on October 27, SAC’s shelling and jet fighter bombing missions have resulted in the destruction of over 150 homes. Consequently, more than 50,000 people in northern Shan State have fled the violence.

Resistance group offensives have expanded to Kachin, Chin, Arakan, Karenni, and Karen states, as well as Mandalay, Magwe, Sagaing, and Tanintharyi regions. The resistance has captured over 150 bases and nine towns in these areas and in northern Shan State.
