Burma-Myanmar: Arakan army claims ambush that killed 30 Government troops


A spokesperson for the Arakan Army claimed Friday that the ethnic armed group destroyed two vehicles belonging to Burma’s military using rocket-propelled grenades, killing some 30 soldiers from the Buthidaung-based Light Infantry Battalion No. 565 in the attack.

The strike, according to Khine Thu Kha of the Arakan Army, occurred on Thursday evening near Wanet Yon village, about 18 miles northeast of Buthidaung town in Arakan State.

Khine Thu Kha said his group had succeeded in ambushing the convoy of government troops. Contacted by The Irrawaddy on Friday, a Burma Army communications officer declined to comment on the reported clash.

The Arakan Army spokesman predicted Friday that “fighting would intensify” if, as expected, the Burma Army dispatched reinforcements to the area.
