According to the DVB news website, the air strikes were launched on Monday, when the military began an offensive in that jungle region, where armed opposition troops are stationed.

The National Unity Government (NUG), a shadow administration created by ousted legislators and other people opposed to the military junta installed on February 1, informed that over 25 soldiers had been killed in the clashes.

Since Thursday, prior to the offensive by its troops, the army severed Internet access in 11 conflict-affected districts in Chin state and the Magway region, DVB added.

A week earlier, thousands of people fled the town of Thantlang in Chin state, bordering India, following clashes between the military and opponents.

Meanwhile, some militia groups created by the NUG claimed responsibility for blowing up dozens of telecommunications towers run by MYTEL, a company partly controlled by the military.
