1. The Union Prime Minister notifies that the military junta has become weakening to the point that its military divisions are disintegrating

At the 31st Cabinet Meeting of the National Unity Government, Union Prime Minister Mahn Winn said: “At this juncture, we can see that our revolutionary forces have made satisfactory military progress, while on the other hand, we can see that the military council is weak to the point that its divisions are disintegrating. It is true to say that the military council is under pressure on all fronts—military, financial, administrative, and diplomatic—as a result of our offensives implemented according to measures specified in the one-year plan. However, we must keep moving ahead from this point, where we can only apply pressure until the decisive battle.”

Over the course of the two years of the People’s Defensive War, about 9,900 instances of battles took place across the country, eliminating about 30,000 enemy soldiers.

The Ministry of Defence has announced that although only 28 enemy bases could be attacked and captured during the first year of the People’s Defensive War, 107 enemy bases could be taken in the second year, resulting in a threefold success.

3. Union Minister U Htin Linn Aung reveals that the Federal Wings’ drones have been delivered to Sagaing and Magway Regions, and more areas will soon receive them

During an exclusive interview with Khit Thit Media, NUG Union Minister of Communications, Information and Technology, U Htin Linn Aung, revealed that the Federal Wings’ technology drones have been delivered to Sagaing and Magway Regions, and more areas will soon receive them.

“As of now, the number of [junta] soldiers who give up and flee to us is rising whenever we deploy drones. Our drones have the capability to drop bombs precisely into their trenches. They are no longer in a position to stop us, no matter how they tried to shoot down our drones with [anti-]drone guns. Therefore, Federal Wings is well-known among them. I am concerned that the military council will launch a massive offensive if they find out where the Federal Wings’ drones are. For this reason, we still keep the [precise] locations secret. As I just said, Federal Wings drones have arrived in Sagaing Region as well as Magway Region and some other areas. It will arrive in other places soon as well,” the Union Minister said.

During the first six months of 2023, the Federal Wings Drone units conducted a total of 281 drone operations, using about 680 grenades of different types. During the operations, about 50 troops of the terrorist military council were eliminated, and many others were injured.

In addition, some units of the Federal Wings Drone Force have been gathered and formally formed as the No. 1801 Drone Force under the Ministry of Defence.

4. Despite launching offensives in Karenni State with 38 battalions, the military junta suffered losses and the dissolution of the battalions as a result of the Karenni alliance forces’ resistance

In his video message to the public for the fundraising campaign of KNDF Strategy 6, namely “The military division is dissolving when it arrives in Karenni,” U Aung San Myint, Chairman of the Karenni State Consultative Council (KSCC), said:

“The terrorist military council has deployed its 55th Infantry Division and 66th Infantry Division, 38 infantry battalions in total, to conduct offensives in Karenni State. Nevertheless, because our Karenni alliances managed to fight back against them bravely, they were facing heavy losses and the disintegration of military divisions.”

Despite the terrorist military council deployed excessive forces of 38 battalions to conduct offensives in Karenni State, the revolutionary forces have managed to gain control over 65% of Karenni State’s territory.

The terrorist military is committing deliberate attacks against civilians, such as attacking with jet fighters and firing artillery shells, on civilians’ residential areas that are neither in war zones nor where fighting is taking place.
