“Currently, two have fallen and seven have been injured. The battle is still going on. There are only five soldiers left on the side of the military council, which is why planes and heavy weapons are helping. This time we are not backing down. We will fight to get the camp,” said an official of the CDF CDM Siyin group.
“Since last night, the attack has been going on until now. We have not been able to finish the camp yet. We have entered about half of the camp,” said Salai Hteet Ni. Locals said that at around 8:00 a.m. today, the Military council army bombed Taingen village twice from the air, and in the afternoon they bombed Suahlim village with an airplane.

It is reported that since December, all the residents of Taingen village, Tedim Township have left their homes and are taking shelter in the nearby Hiangzing village and Kalaymyo.
