Two Rakhine Militants of Arakan Liberation Army (ALA) were captured in a joint operation by Myanmar Military of Battalion 232 and Battalion 289 nearby La-pa-wa Myanmar Armed Force Unit in Paletwa Township of Chin State on June 16, 2014. The militants were Sergeant Khaing Htwee (medical in charge) and Aung Shwe Mra of ALA Battalion No. 9.

They have been charged under different sections and detained in Paletwa Police Station, according to a report by Arakan Liberation Party (ALP), political wing of Arakan Liberation Army (ALA).

They were said to have been captured while they were travelling to ALP’s Liaison Office in Kyauktaw, the source added.

And on the subsequent day (i.e. June 17, 2014), a heavy exchange of fire took place between Myanmar Military (of the above-mentioned Battalions) and ALA Militants of Battalion 9 at ALA Controlled Area in Paletwa Township. There were no (dead) casualties in the side of ALA but (one militant named) Khaing Lunn Tuan from ALP was captured by Myanmar Military. The casualties in the part of Myanmar Military is not known, says a reliable Rakhine source on the ground.

Post May 15, 2014, numbers of exchange of fire between ALA and Myanmar Military have taken place in Commandment Area 1&2 in northern Maungdaw. ALA attacked Myanmar Border Guard Police (BGP) in Muslims’ disguise to make people perceive them as *RSO. As planned, since then, there have been constant media rumors and propaganda of attacks on BGP by *RSO.

In a power struggle between Myanmar Military backed by China and ALA backed by some global powers, defenseless Rohingyas are being scapegoated.
