Burmese army post burnt down by KIA

One of three Burmese army posts at Nam San Yang Village, in Kachin State, was burnt down on Monday night by the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), according to KIA officials in its Laiza headquarters in Kachin State.

A village elder told the Kachin News Group the three main camps at the Lazing Kawng post in the village were completely burned down at about 10 p.m. local time, by a fire set by the KIA.

The army post is situated beside the Myitkyina-Manmaw (Bhamo) Road and traders and other people had stopped at the post and demanded cash for their belongings as well as people had been interrogated in the buildings, he added.

No government troops were injured or killed because they were moved to other two strong army posts in the village five days ago, according to villagers.

Nam San Yang has been in the war zone since the new government launched its offensive against the KIA’s Sang Gang post on June 9.
