KARENNI STATE – The Karenni Nationalities People’s Liberation Front (KNPLF) has officially announced on July 1 that it has joined forces with the National Unity Government (NUG) to fight back against the coup regime in the Spring Revolution.
It has been announced that the activities related to the Spring Revolution, which were partially covered up in secret due to some issues that were previously covered, will be officially and openly carried out.
Currently, various Revolutionary Forces had been fighting against genocidal junta, and the KNPLF has also claimed that it shall fight decisively from the Karenni front.
The announcement also said that the KNPLF clearly and discreetly had a hand in the Spring Revolution in various ways from various places and positions, since the coup d’état.
On June 14, the KNPLD have relinquished the junta-sponsored Border Guard Force (BGF) uniform and put on the KNPLF uniform, and joined in the Spring Revolution by fighting against the atrocious junta and capturing junta’s Mese police station, strategic outpost and border camps by collaborating with Karenni Nationalities Defense Force (KNDF) and Karenni Army (KA) joint forces.
The KNPLF force was transformed into the Border Guard Force (BGF) of the junta army after the ceasefire with State Peace and Development Council (SDPC) in early May 1994.
