Rakhine State, where the fighting was intense for the past month, seems to have calmed down a bit this month, but in the past few days, the AA attacked and occupied an army camp in the northern part of Maungdaw. The battle to capture the camp lasted only about an hour, and AA captured 14 prisoners along with the weapons and ammunition. As for AA, as soon as the camps are captured, the army gets weapons and ammunition, so it’s like frying carp with carp oil.
The Military Council side is forcing the use of civilian vessels for the transfer of troops in Rakhine State. Now, human rights groups are warning Japan because the ships donated by Japan are being used for military purposes to facilitate people’s transportation. In the current Burmese issue, Japan no longer takes a firm stand on the side of the people as it used to, and we are seeing some forms of conformity with the military council.
