YANGON, Myanmar – Regiment 5 of the Karen National Union has blocked the logistics of the Myanmar military in one of the military’s controlled areas.
The Myanmar military transported 500 bags of rice and edible oil from the Thailand side of the border due to how difficult it was for them to carry the rations from the Myanmar side where the KNU blockade is.
“At this time, the Myanmar military usually carries their military rations, but this year we don’t allow them to carry them because of the military coup,” said an official from the KNU.
Recently, the Karen National Union has declared autonomy in their controlled area, where it has fought for self-determination for more than six decades.
The Karen National Union is a signatory of Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA).
