 The junta violated the ceasefire agreement and launched a new offensive against the Ta'ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) in Mogok Township of Mandalay Division.


At approximately 8 PM on January 22, junta forces launched an attack on the 8-Mile area located between Mogok and Mongmit (Momeik) townships, where TNLA troops were stationed, leading to clashes, according to TNLA's news and information department.


Clash erupted as junta forces attacked the TNLA in Mogok, located within Ta'ang Military Region No. 2.


In the clash, the TNLA seized three weapons from the junta forces.


Similarly, on January 13, junta forces from the 501st and 502nd Battalions, stationed in Kyaukme Township as part of Ta'ang Military Region No. 2, initiated an attack on Nyein Chan Yay Kone (Peace Hill), where the TNLA was deployed.


At that time, the Palaung State Liberation Front (PSLF), the political wing of TNLA, issued a statement clarifying that TNLA troops had temporarily retreated due to concerns that local residents might be caught and endangered by the armed clashes.


Despite signing the ceasefire agreement on January 11, the junta forces have consistently violated the ceasefire by conducting repeated incursions, artillery barrages, and airstrikes in Mongmit, Mogok, Kyaukme, Namkham, and Lashio townships, as reported in the TNLA's statement.
