On 13 January 2016, troops of RCSS/SSA and PSLF/TNLA fought each other about 20 minutes in the morning at 05:10 am at Gant Gorn village, Kyaukmae Township, in northern Shan State.
RCSS/SSA captured 9 guns of M-22, 1 RPG-2 and 3 microphones of TNLA. Troops of RCSS/SSA were safe in the battle and the situation on the side of TNLA troops was not known.
The conflict between RCSS/SSA and TNLA started from last 27 November 2015 due to TNLA’s attack on troops of RCSS/SSA on the way to their outpost base while coming back from their headquarters.
On 2 December 2015 PSLF/TNLA arrested 23 villagers from villages of Hopan, Murngvill and Murngkhart. And on 22 December, 8 villagers were released but 15 villagers were still in the hand of TNLA until now, so all villagers thought that the 15 villagers were killed by the troops of TNLA.
