According to a KIA source, a clash broke out between the military junta troops coming down from their hilltop outpost near Nam San Yang village, Laiza, to carry rations and the Kachin Independence Organisation (KIO), resulting in the deaths of two junta soldiers and the capture of five, along with their ammunition.

On September 30, at around 8:30 in the morning, the KIA Battalion No. 25 ambushed a group of 15 junta soldiers coming down from the light infantry battalion No. 438 (LIB 438) stationed at Shan Htong mountain when they arrived near Wu Htan Yan village.

6. Nant Phat Kar High School nearly deserted following heavy weapon explosion

The Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) reported that, despite the reopening, there is very low student attendance at Nant Phat Kar High School following the explosion of artillery shells inside the school.

On September 26th, during the clash between the military junta forces and TNLA forces in the Nant Phat Kar area, three artillery shells detonated in a residential ward, and four shells struck the school. This led to the injuries of an 11-year-old child and a man due to artillery shrapnel. Concerns have arisen among the parents of the students regarding their children’s safety in light of the ammunition explosions on the school premises. Despite the school reopening on September 28th, two days after the incident, there were hardly any students going to school.

Kutkai Township falls within the jurisdiction of the 1st Brigade of the TNLA, the armed wing of the Palaung State Liberation Front (PSLF). Consequently, the military junta frequently deploys heavy weaponry and carries out airstrikes in areas believed to be TNLA force positions.

7. Simultaneous Attacks target Three Military Junta Guard Posts in Shwebo

Local defence forces launched coordinated attacks on three military junta guard posts outside Myin Chin village in Shwebo Township, as reported by the Myanmar Defence Force Shwebo.

The coordinated attacks by the local defence forces occurred around 3:00 a.m. this morning, resulting in an approximately 30-minute exchange of fire between the two sides. During this confrontation, three junta soldiers lost their lives at the scene, while the remaining forces fled into Myin Chin village, according to the Myanmar Defence Force Shwebo.

Despite the defence forces pursuing and engaging the retreating junta soldiers near the village, they were eventually compelled to withdraw due to the arrival of reinforcements from the junta-backed Pyu Saw Htee, who were hailing from Pan Yan and Leik Chin villages, as reported by the Myanmar Defence Force Shwebo.
