Myan­mar troops seized an Arakan Army (AA) train­ing camp in Mrauk-U town­ship, in­clud­ing weapons, am­mu­ni­tion, and food re­serves, a govern­ment mil­i­tary spokesman said, though a rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the AA de­nied the claim, sug­gest­ing that it was a fab­ri­ca­tion. Bri­gadier General Win Zaw Oo, spokesman for the mil­i­tary’s Western Re­gional Com­mand which is re­spon­si­ble for Rakhine state, told RFA’s Myan­mar Ser­vice that the AA set up the base east of Pan Myaung vil­lage as a tem­po­rary camp while fight­ing govern­ment sol­diers. AA spokesman Khine Thukha de­nied the mil­i­tary’s claim, say­ing that the AA did not set up any train­ing fa­cil­i­ties in the lo­ca­tion east of Pan Myaung vil­lage, as men­tioned in the an­nounce­ment by the Myan­mar mil­i­tary.
