The AA reiterated their message to the junta soldiers, remaining in Taung Pro Let Wae camp, to surrender with their weapons.

 

The AA fighters are currently engaged in an offensive to capture specific camps in Mrauk-U, Minbya, and Kyauktaw townships, added the Three Brotherhood Alliance statement.
