TNLA accuses Myanmar military of breaking ceasefire with attacks in northern Shan State

The group says the regime has carried out multiple attacks on its positions in recent weeks, claiming both civilian and TNLA casualties

The Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) has accused Myanmar’s military of violating its ceasefire agreement with ethnic armed groups in northern Shan State following an airstrike that left one woman dead and three others injured on Wednesday.

The attack was just the latest by regime forces in the area, where the TNLA and its allies have captured wide swathes of territory since late last year.

“Junta troops have broken the ceasefire deal several times, frequently attacking civilians and TNLA positions in our areas. So we’d like to alert civilians to stay vigilant for possible junta assaults,” a member of the group’s information team told Myanmar Now on Thursday.

Wednesday’s attack on the village of Taung Ni in Kyaukme Township took place at around 3:30pm, the spokesperson said, adding that one of the injured civilians was a 10-year-old child.
