The Arakan Army (AA) has captured Yan Aung Pyin outpost in Maungdaw township of Rakhine State after a 5-hour long battle, said a statement.

 

It added that the outpost refused to surrender and hence the AA fighters launched an offensive on 23 February and finally succeeded  by 12:15 pm.

 

The AA reiterated their stand that they will capture all the remaining camps in its vicinity.

 

Meanwhile, the AA fighters targeted number 9 advanced training school near Kanni village, which is now the sole active base in Minbya locality. The  550th light infantry battalion in Ponnagyun township also faces the offensive.

 

The junta forces persisted in conducting airstrikes over  Ramree township. The AA fighters

attacked many designated operational targets.

 

Now they are focusing on all military camps in Ponnagyun, Rathedaung, Buthidaung, Maungdaw and Minbya townships, which have not surrendered.
