The Arakan Army, an insurgent group, has successfully seized control of Rathedaung township in Rakhine state, forcing out Junta soldiers. Following two weeks of intense fighting, approximately 200 Junta soldiers were able to escape on Sunday night.

The news of Rathedaung township falling to the Arakan Army was confirmed by the Irrawaddy, a news outlet run by Myanmar journalists living in exile. Additionally, Radio Free Asia, based in the US, also verified the takeover.

According to reports from the Arakan Army sources, the Irrawaddy stated that soldiers of the Junta were making use of conscripted Rohingyas as human shields to maintain control over the area. Three battalions of the military regime stationed in Rathedaung managed to flee with approximately two hundred survivors on boats.

On the other hand, the Teknaf correspondent of Prothom Alo, citing information from local sources, reported that the Arakan Army launched an attack on the Border Guard Police (BGP) sector in the Nakpura area near the Bangladesh border on Sunday evening.
