Myanmar military poised to launch campaign against People's Defence Forces

by Anthony Davis

Myanmar's armed forces (Tatmadaw) are poised to launch a multipronged counter-insurgency campaign in the country's west aimed at crushing an upsurge in resistance to the State Administration Council (SAC) regime installed following the February coup.

After a steady build-up of forces that has involved army, air force, and riverine naval assets, the campaign will coincide with the end of the monsoon season in October and mark the Tatmadaw's first combined-arms offensive against concentrations of opposition People's Defence Forces (PDFs) that have proliferated across Myanmar since April in response to military suppression of civilian protests.
