AA GROUP attacked a regional military headquarters in Baungdote Village of MraukU Township in the evening on 24 April,
according to a news release from the military. One AA member was reportedly killed in the attack.
Using small and heavy arms, the group launched the first attack from within the village, and two others from the Yangon-Sittway Road near the military installation.
The AA group attacked the HQ and the security gate from inside the Baungdote Village around 7:30 p.m, and the security forces returned fire.
The firing seized around 7:40 p.m. Around 8:15 p.m., the group attacked the installation using heavy arms from the Yangon-Sittway Road, and again fired small arms around 9 p.m.
Yesterday morning, officials from the HQ inspected the area from where the attacks were launched and found the body of one AA member. Tatmadaw columns are continuing security operations in the region.
AA members have attacked the military HQ thrice from the village.
On 18 April, officials had met with villagers at the monastery in the village and had asked them not to support terrorism and inform the security forces if AA members came near the village.
Members of the AA are taking cover in towns, wards, and villages to approach and attack military installations, so that if the military engages with them, they can create misunderstandings between the people and the Tatmadaw, according to news released by the Office of the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services —MNA
