The Arakan Army (AA) on Monday announced that it has captured Taroaing Tactical Command Center located at Paletwa township, a strategically important military base located in western border of Myanmar near the international border with Bangladesh and India.


Mentionable is that the AA members targeted the military base at 6 am on 14 November and it was successfully captured by 1 pm on 4 December last.


Spanning approximately 21 days, the offensive by AA members resulted in the fall of Taroaing Tactical Command Center. The success came after sacrifices of many AA members when the junta forces relentless used airstrikes, artillery shelling, and even chemical warfare agents.


The AA statement also added that it seized enemy bodies, arms & ammunition along with military equipments.


The next target for AA members is Hnonebu Tactical Command Center in Paletwa Township in Chin state.


The AA also paid tributes to their members, who made supreme sacrifices in the battle, for whose courage and skills the organisation has occupied the centre with two helipads.


It emphasised on the need for ‘Defenders of Our Fatherland’, the individuals who love Arakan State and want to secure the recently captured junta’s hill-based camps as well as those abandoned border camps.


By this statement, the AA invites young individuals with a strong sense of nationalism and responsibility to come forward and serve the nation.


The battle in Pauktaw township, 16 miles east of Rakhine state capital Sittwe, continues with a sustained effort to defeat the junta forces.
