At least one person was wounded after four artillery shells exploded in Lashio (Shan state) on Saturday, November 16. Several shells reportedly struck Lashio Airport (LSH), causing damage to a runway and prompting officials to temporarily shut down the facility. Normal operations at LSH resumed on Sunday, November 17. Military officials blamed the attack on members of the Ta'ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), though a spokesman for the group denied any involvement in the incident.
Similar attacks are possible in Shan state over the near term.
Individuals in Shan state are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant and military activity, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
