On 31 December, 2022, the military council released a statement on the “ceasefire and eternal peace” in the country. The suspension of military operations will be extended from 1 January to 31 December, 2023 except for the acts that could harm the security and administrative mechanism of the country in addition to defending the union and administrative affairs. It is found that fighting has been taking place in Karen State, Kachin State, Chin State, Sagaing Region, Magway Region, Mon State, Tanintharyi, southern Shan State and even Yangon as from January 1, 2023, shortly after the military council’s ceasefire announcement. We come to notice the fact that the military council conducts an offensive with heavy reliance on air power.
Our BNI-Myanmar Peace Monitor’s weekly news review for this week focuses on the military council’s airstrikes.
