KIA re-opens Laiza entrance gate after more than ten years : Myanmar

On April 26, the KIA reopened the entrance gate of Laiza, where the Kachin Liberation Army (KIA) is headquartered, after more than ten years.

A local resident of Laiza said that the KIA's recapture of the Laiza entrance gate, where the military council troops were stationed, was a significant military success.

"The military council troops have now retreated, and the KIA is now on the offensive. That's why the KIA sat back and reopened the old road. Before the road, the military council troops were sitting there and threatening Laiza. They are threatening Laiza from the camps on the hills around there. Now that they have retreated, it is good for Laiza. From a military point of view, it is an important matter for the KIA to regain this place. In the current situation, about 6 military council camps near the KIA offensive last month We had to withdraw. We were able to seize many of the battalion camps (KIA). So we no longer have the ability to threaten Laiza with heavy weapons."

KIA Lt. Gen. Gwang Mao also said on his Facebook page that the reopening of the Linza road is not a victory, but a measure of freedom for local residents when they were able to reopen the entrances to Linza after more than 10 years. We will have to continue to try so that the whole country can enjoy the taste of freedom," he wrote.

The Military Council has not released any news regarding this situation, and RFA contacted General Zaw Min Tun, who is allowed to speak for the Military Council, by telephone, but he did not answer the phone.

Residents said that the new Laiza city entrance sign was erected on Laiza Road near the intersection of Laiza-Lajayan-Bangmao Road. In Kachin State in 2011-2012, when the Kachin Resurgence War broke out, the entrance gate to Linza was controlled and deployed by the Burmese army.

(KIA) started the operation on March 7, and during the battle for more than a month, the military council stationed near Laiza, where the KIA headquarters is located, for decades. In addition to Khaya, the entrance gate to Laiza city was also reopened after the capture of the Napho camp, which was the former KIO headquarters. Colonel Nobu, the KIA's head of information and communication, told RFA that more than 60 military council camps had been seized.
