Behind the operations Three Brotherhood Alliance (AA, TNLA and MNDAA) is waging in northern Shan State is China, which some EAO leaders and nationalist elements have believed.

So, nationalist elements made protests against China in Naypyidaw and Yangon on 16th November 2023. Ko Sithu Myint, vise chairman of the Myanmar Nationalists Network and Yangon patriots protested in Yangon.

Naung Taw Lay, general secretary of the network and Naypyidaw patriots protested in Naypyidaw.

" I just want to tell them to put out the fire that they set on by themselves. Countries involved know what I mean. The State Administration Council (SAC) held the 8th anniversary celebration of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA). By turning a blind eye to these, they are making the country unstable, which we have no reason to accept. It is not that we are supporting the Tatmadaw. We are just protecting our three national causes. Because we see that they are encroaching on our sovereignty, our network make a protest today." said Ko Sithu Myint.

In cooperation with the Bamar People Liberation Army (BPLA), The People's Defense Force-Mandalay (PDF-MDY), and the People's Liberation Army (PLA), the Three Brotherhood Alliance - the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army(MNDAA), the Arakan Army (AA) and the Ta'ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) started the Operation-1027 on 27th October in Theinni, Namkham, Muse, Chin Shwe Haw, Naunghkio, Phaungsai and Kyukote (Pangsai) in northern Shan State and are fighting against the Tatmadaw camps.

After that, they are capturing towns and cities.

Because northern allies and PDFs are using China-made weapons and drones and fighting against the Tatmadaw, China should prevent it, military experts pointed out.

Kachin, China and Wa might take part in planning the operation, said Col.Khun Okka, an EAO leader.

" China has known it in advance, I think. But China won't tell directly. China might tell through Wa. Kachin also participate in planning the operation. So, behind the operation might be Kachin, Wa and China." said Col. Khun Okka to CNI News.

At present, the Three Brotherhood Alliance (AA, MNDAA and TNLA) is attacking the Tatmadaw camps and waging battles capturing towns and cities in northern Shan State and so are the Karenni Nationalities Defense Force (KNDF) and the Karenni Army (KA) in Kayah State and so is the Arakan Army (AA) in Rakhine State and so are the Karen
National Union (KNU) and the People's Defense Force (PDF) in Kayin State and so are the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and the PDF in Kachin State and so are the KIA, the AA, PDF and ABSDF in Sagaing Region.

Behind these armed forces seem to be China and US.

Nationalist groups made protests to condemn foreign interference and oppose interference in internal affairs in Naypyidaw and Yangon.
