Another border guard post on Myanmar's western border, close to Bangladesh, has
been captured by the Arakan Army (AA). The captured camp is Dom Nyo border
guard station, a major military base located in Maungdaw township in northern Rakhine State, said
a reliable source.
"The border police and army personnel were warned to surrender by the AA, but they didn't do so. Finally the AA members started attacking the border guard station and captured the base at about 1 pm on 17 November,” said an AA statement.
The camp was attacked at 10 pm on 16 November. Even though the Burmese soldiers attacked with airstrikes and fired heavy weapons, the AA members eventually captured the camp that supported 70 soldiers, successfully despite heavy rains during the offensive against the soldiers.
It is said that 18 border policemen were captured along with 40 weapons and military equipment during the battle.
Some AA members were also killed and a few were wounded.
Currently, the AA continues to attack two important military tactical commands at Taron Ai and Nonebu under Palat township of Chin State.
The AA members resumed the attack on the Burmese military forces on 13 November and November captured Dom Pike border guard station located at south-western part of Rathedaung township, 20 miles north of Sittwe.
Next day, Chang Khali camp was attacked and finally captured by AA members. Till date, three border guard stations have been seized by the AA members.
