Due to the fear of attacks by the Arakan Army (AA), the junta forces are now withdrawing from the border guard police stations in southern Buthidaung township of Rakhine State.

 

These stations include Nyaung Chaung border guard police station, Pha Yone Chaung border guard police station, Nget Pyaw Chaung border guard police station, Phayar Paw Taung border guard police station and Tha Peik Taung border guard police station.

 

On 22 January at 8 pm, approximately 100 junta soldiers withdrew from the Nyaung Chaung border guard police station.

 

"They took away the soldiers from the police station by 10 pm. When they left the police station, the sound of gunshots was heard from Nget Pyaw Chaung area," said a local villager from Buthidaung locality.

 

He informed that these junta soldiers joined the number 8 border guard police battalion in Buthidaung.

 

"As far as we came to know, they went to join the nearby No 8 BG police battalion," he added.

 

Buthidaung is a town housing the junta's border guard forces and dozens of battalions, including the 15th military operations command (MOC-15). The local residents revealed that the junta forces are apprehensive of another round of attacks by the AA fighters.
