MAUNGDAW – An armed group from Bangladesh, the Rohingya Solidarity Organization (RSO) has attacked a Myanmar border outpost near boundary pillar 38 and 39 on May 12.
“The border security force fought with the invading RSO. It lasted fifteen minutes. It was happened near the boundary pillar 38,” said an official from No. 1 border security force.
The RSO members intended to destroy the villages located near the Maungdaw border. Myanmar troops are prepared in case of further RSO attacks in Myanmar, according to the official.
The security forces in Maungdaw and surrounding villages have increased in order to prevent any violence as happened in June 2012.
