AA and ARSA Jointly Attack Border Guard Police Outposts between Myanmar and Bangladesh, Mortar Shells Exploded in Bangladesh

The State Administration Council are endeavoring to achieve eternal peace by inviting ethnic armed organizations to the talks for eternal peace. Meanwhile, the Arakan Army (AA) ignored the invitation to peace talks and attacked the border police outposts near Myanmar-Bangladesh border posts with excessive force. In this regard –

  • On 16 September, the AA launched attacks by cooperating with ARSA from a certain distance on the Taungpyo Latwal (left) police outpost near BP-31 between Myanmar and Bangladesh using small and heavy arms and three shells fell into the Bangladesh side and three exploded.
  • On 17 September, they also attacked again the Taungpyo Latyar (right) police outpost near BP-34 using heavy weapons and six shells fell and exploded in the territory of Bangladesh.
  • It is reported that some people near the Bangladesh border area were injured after the explosion of mortar shells.

While the government is making all-round efforts to achieve eternal peace, the attacks by the AA with ARSA on border guard polices, who are conducting security measures in order to maintain peace, stability and the rule of law along the border, near the Myanmar-Bangladesh border fencing were launched intentionally to negatively affect the bilateral relations of two countries.

AA committed ambush attacks on the border police, and blocked and cut communication channels. On 31 August, they attacked the border guard police outposts at BP-40 with excessive force at their surprise. Consequently, the outpost was lost, and some border guard members sacrificed their lives in the attack.

For the above mentioned cases, the informing letters were sent to Cox’s Bazar-based No 34 Border Guards Bangladesh via the Myanmar Border Guard Police Force Unit and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported to officials concerned as per the procedures.
