Yangon (Chindwin): On the 77th Armed Force Day of Myanmar, also formerly known as Resistance Day, the junta leader Senior General Min Aung Hlaing vowed to root out all resistance organizations and individuals supporting the civilian resistance forces and never negotiate with those resisting the military rule following the military coup in February 2021.
The coup leader, who follows the steps of former military dictators – Than Shwe and Ne Win, has thrown out his threats openly in his speech aiming at the organizations the junta Administration announced as terrorist organizations. These are National Unity Government (NUG), CRPH (Committee Representing Pyitaungsuh Hluttaw), People Defense Forces and various civilian resistance forces.
On another note, the junta’s Commander-in-Chief largely focuses on the morale build-up among the largely-stretched Tatmadaw, urging the Armed Forces to build a more vital unity as the junta blames external forces and selfish politicians attempting at all cost to destroy the Tatmadaw – Armed Force of Myanmar.
Myanmar’s Armed Forces Day is observed in the war-torn country as an official public holiday, formerly known as Resistance Day.
The junta has conducted a pre-dawn airstrike in Karen State and destroyed several houses at Pe Kay village tract in Mutraw district of Karen State.
Across Karen, Kayah, Sagaing and Chin, the junta leader wages a heavier offensive this time against the civilian resistance forces as the junta army has faced massive losses in these regions.
Domestic political analyst, who speaks to Chindwin on the conditions of anonymity, believes the junta leader acknowledges the Tatmadaw has been on the losing side, and Senior General Min Aung Hlaing’s speech partly reflects it as he largely focuses on the need to build unity among Tatmadaw.
