Tatmadaw rescues 14 abductees from AA group

Tatmadaw transport and armed helicopters managed to rescue 14 persons in hours after some people were abducted by AA armed group, according to the report of the Office of Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services.
The AA armed group abducted Tatmataw personnel, police officers, service personnel, and civilians onboard Shwenadi Watercraft en route from Sittway to Buthidaung near Yemyat village on 26 October.
Security forces were immediately conveyed by the transport helicopters for rescue operation to the nearest place of abduction. The AA armed group tried to shoot down the helicopter, but just hit its body and the pilot to injure. An armed helicopter then supported in carrying the security forces, the report said.
Tatmadaw’s armed helicopter fired warning shots as it was also hit by the weapons of AA armed group. After some hours of rescue operation, 14 persons could flee from the AA armed group. The released abductees said warning shots of Tatmadaw (Air) and ground operation of security forces helped them to run away from AA armed group, and the Tatmadaw columns are still trying for the release of remaining abductees.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
