Burma-Myanmar: Burma army and Arakan Army (AA) soldiers clash again in Arakan State


A Burma Army battalion and Arakan Army (AA) soldiers fought for around half an hour on Sunday afternoon near Rathedaung Township’s Kharu Chaung and Rakaung Chaung villages in Arakan State, but no casualties from either side were reported.

Wai Hun Aung of the Wunlark Development Foundation said that it took upward of an hour for the fighting to fully cease but that it was not as serious as previous incidents of conflict.

He said that the residents of the villages’ 200 households had already fled because of previous skirmishes between Burma Army and AA troops.

The Arakan State government and local civil society organizations recently collaborated to secure emergency response and humanitarian assistance for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Rathedaung Township’s villages, having built 17 temporary tents in Rakaung Chaung, 30 in Pae Thadu, 64 in Rayso Chaung and 20 in Kyauktan. Five primary schools were also built.

More than 2,000 villagers are sheltered in temporary camps in Kyauktaw, Ponnagyun, Rathedaung and Mrauk-U townships in Arakan State.
