The Arakha Army (AA) on Friday claimed that over 400 junta soldiers were killed in clashes against their fighters during the first week of June. The AA fighters continue offensives in three Rakhine townships, where the casualties are reported.


An AA statement highlighted that conflicts spread across Maungdaw, Ann (where the western command is based) and Thandwe townships.


Among the junta casualties, those who drowned in Kyauk Pan Du and Ah Lel Than Kyaw beaches, U Daung creek and the Bay of Bengal, are included.


The AA also reported that at least 100 junta soldiers were killed in Ann and Thandwe townships. The fighting intensified in the first week of June itself.


During the battle near Gawt ward of Ngapali town under  Thandwe township, the junta soldiers fiercely resisted with three warships at sea along with numerous airstrikes and artillery shelling. The AA fighters displayed bravery and compelled the junta soldiers to retreat after many casualties. A speed boat belonging to the junta also sank after the AA fighters continued their offensive.


The fighting around Taw Hein Taung continued to escalate as the AA fighters tried  to seize control over Taw Hein Taung camp in Ann township, added the statement.
