Myanmar Rebel Group Capture Junta Troops


July 19, 2022



A Myanmar ethnic rebel group says it has captured 14 junta troops and killed an unspecified number, in the only region to have seen no post-coup crackdown.


Recall, that days after its insurrection last year, the junta reaffirmed a ceasefire with the Arakan Army (AA).


But the ceasefire has frayed, with small, sporadic clashes reported since last November and both sides accusing the other of infringing on territory and harassing supporters.



AA spokesman Khaing Thukha says following two clashes in Maungdaw, near the Bangladesh border, on Monday “13 soldiers and an officer were captured” and a number of weapons seized.
