SHAN STATE: It is known that the battle in Hsihseng township, Southern Shan state is still being intense, where over 40 dead bodies of the soldiers and Pyithusitt (militants) have been left behind, as said by Pa-O National Liberation Army (PNLA).
On January 30, the battle was intense in the northern part of Hsihseng township and the dead bodies of the soldiers and Pyithusitt (militants) had been left behind unburied. In the evening battle, about 50 guns were confiscated and Hsihseng is still under the control of PNLA.
The junta’s council reportedly launched the airstrike into the region from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on January 30, which caused the Lwehtwet monastery and Shwe Nyaung Pin gas station to be torched down and destroyed.
In the afternoon of January 30, the junta’s airstrike hit the monastery and gas station to be destroyed, as said by a resident from Aung Chan Thar Ward.
The members of the junta’s forces and junta backed Pa-O National Organisation (PNO) reportedly fired the heavy artillery from Infantry Unit (423) and (424) but the heavy casualties of the junta’s forces deterred them from keeping forward. As a result, Hsihseng is still under the control of the PNLA.
