All clashes were within the territories controlled by KIA and more than 1,500 tons of valuable teak logs, 41 logging-trucks, heavy logging equipment, and various assault weapons with tons of ammunitions were so far captured. The army operation is still going on.
According to reliable intelligence sources two notorious Chinese-Kachin timber billionaires Naw-Taung and Kyoun-Si from the bordering Yunan State of China had recently visited KIA-HQ town Laiza on China border and demanded KIA General Gun-Maw to defend their Chinese loggers and their illegal logging operations inside Burma.

The obvious result is KIA forces' frequently-repeated refusals to fight and the depleted KIA field forces fleeing instead of engaging their enemies whenever they were challenged by the mobile army columns in their own territories.

And in return two Chinese timber-billionaires Naw-Taung and Kyouin-Si has agreed to provide KIA with all the necessary weapons and ammunitions free of charge plus all the expenses incurred by the KIA in recovering their captured teak-logs from Burma Army units.
