Fierce fighting breaks out near Myanmar naval base in Rakhine

The clashes near the Danyawaddy naval base in Kyaukphyu Township came after an AA attack that left 10 junta troops dead

Major clashes broke out in Rakhine State’s Kyaukphyu Township on Monday following an Arakha Army (AA) attack on regime forces near the state’s largest naval base, according to local sources.

The fighting began after the AA intercepted a column of about 100 junta soldiers as they were leaving the Danyawaddy naval base at around 7am, the sources said.
