Clashes erupt between Myanmar’s army and Arakan militants

Sittwe: – A conflict is raging between the Myanmar army and the Arakan terrorists since the last 48 hours. Myanmar had brought along the air force and the navy along with the military in this conflict in the mountainous territory of the Rakhine province. The locals informed that the Myanmar armed forces had undertaken a joint operation against these terrorists. It has also been reported that the Arakan terrorists have abducted three leaders from the Rakhine province. The Arakan terrorists pose a threat even to the India-Myanmar border, and it has already been exposed that China is supplying arms to these terrorists.   

The conflict between the Myanmar military and Arakan terrorists is going on since 2018. Myanmar government has imposed a ceasefire in the entire country excepting the Rakhine province. This decision has been taken in view of the activities of the Arakan terrorists against the Myanmar government. The Myanmar government has declared that the Rakhine province will be made free after the elimination of these Arakan terrorists. Against this background, the Myanmar military has launched attacks on the Arakan terrorists since the last two weeks, and as per locals, the attacks have been intensified since Tuesday.   

These attacks are being carried out in the Aung Thar Si village. Myanmar military has initiated raids on the terrorist posts and the hideouts. Whereas, the Myanmar fighter jets are launching attacks on the Arakan bases here. Till now, the Myanmar military was using helicopters to carry out the attacks. But the Myanmar military has underlined the seriousness of the attacks by including fighter jets in operation. The patrol vessels of the Myanmar navy have carried out an independent action, sailing through the rivers. Locals are claiming that the Arakan terrorists suffered huge losses in this action.   

The Indian military has already warned that the Arakan terrorists are also a threat to the Indian border security. It was exposed in July that these Arakan terrorists are receiving arms from China. India had then demanded that the Myanmar military should take action against the Arakan terrorists. Ten days ago, Indian Chief of Army Staff General Manoj Mukund Naravane and Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla had visited Myanmar.
