In that situation, on 6th of August 1948, the guerilla unit of Vo Kha, Thanh Son district attacked Choi military post. With lances and spikes made from bambusa nutans and the support of local people, the guerilla unit killed and injured six enemy soldiers, destroyed the enemy post, collected many weapons, freed people arrested, prevented the plot to establish “self-governing Muong region” of the enemy.
