Karen Rebels are Expanding Operations Against the Junta Near Capital City

The Karen Nationalities Defense Force said it is expanding operations against the Junta in the towns of Pekon, Pinlaung, and Paung Laung, in Shan State, southern Myanmar.

These operations will put more pressure on the Junta, which is fighting a multi-front war against resistance groups.

Pekon, Pinlaung, and Paung Laung are around two hours from Naypyidaw, the capital of Myanmar.
