                                     The Shan State Army-South (SSA-S)

SSA-S, sometimes called simply the Shan State Army, though there is also a Shan State Army – North (SSA-N) ) is one of the bigger rebel factions fighting against the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) regime of Burma. The commander in chief of the SSA is Lieutenant General Yawd Serk.

The Shan State Army – South was formed by Lieutenant General Yawd Serk after Mong Tai Army/Shan State Restoration Council (MTA/SSRC) which was led by Khun Sa surrendered to Burmese Army in January 1995, in Homong Eastern Shan State.

After refused to surrender with Khun Sa on 27 January 1996, lieutenant General Sao Yawd Serk is believed to led around 800 Shan patriots in the central of Shan State and established the Shan State Army-South (SSA-S) in 1996. He then urged and persuaded the patriots to stand together and resume the resistance against Burmese Army. Right after then, he was able to increase over 1000 Shan patriots fighters before returning to the Shan-Thai border.
During the staying along the Shan-Thai border, SSA-S manage to recruit significant numbers of troops and built its Headquarter. In 27 May 2000, SSA-S formed Restoration Council of Shan State (RCSS) to act as its political wing with 11 Central Executive Committee members to lead on the political front. General Yawd Serk was chosen to be the chairman of the RCSS. Since SSA-S is formed, it face constant attacks from the Burmese Army.
