Arakan Army claims to have 11 Myanmar Army prisoners

The Arakan Army has taken 11 Myanmar Army soldiers prisoner and seized arms following a weekend clash in Chin state’s Paletwa township, which abuts volatile Rakhine state where hostilities have intensified between the two sides since late last year, according to RFA quoting an AA official.
       The AA fighting for autonomy in Rakhine state, captured the men along with weapons and ammunition after it had overrun a strategic hill controlled by the Myanmar Army on March 9 near Pyan So village in the Pee Chaung area of Paletwa, said AA spokesman Khine Thukha.
       The soldiers were from Light Infantry Battalion 563 based in Rakhine’s Gwa township and stationed in Paletwa under the command of Light Infantry Division 5, he said.
