The Arakan Army (AA) ambushed a military convoy traveling in an area under the control of the Myanmar military’s Western Command in southern Rakhine State’s Ann Township on Sunday, injuring one soldier.

Office of the Commander-in-Chief spokesman Brigadier General Zaw Min Tun confirmed that one soldier was wounded when Myanmar Army troops were attacked with remotely detonated landmines in Ann Township. He said the rebels detonated two landmines under a military convoy and retreated when soldiers fought back against them during the clash, which took place in a rural area of the township.

The AA said its fighters destroyed three of the seven military trucks in the convoy. It said the three trucks were believed to be newly dispatched to Rakhine State. Tan Tin village administrator U Aung Than Myint, who was in Dat Taw village on Sunday, recalled clearly hearing explosions and a gunfight lasting about 30 minutes.

The AA claimed it killed some troops during the short engagement in Ann Township.
