Since Friday, Myanmar soldiers have reportedly killed a large number of Rohingya Muslims under a pretext of responding to attacks against the country’s border posts.

Hundreds of Rohingya villagers fled from Rakhine province in northwestern Myanmar to Bangladish borders since the violence intensified.

According to Bangladesh border guards, Myanmar security forces opened fire against hundreds of Rohingya Muslims fleeing Rakhine area and taking refuge in the border highlands.

At least 100 people lost their lives, according to reports.

There are still no confirmed reports about the possible casualties because the media is not allowed in the area.

Rohingya Muslims are a core of the militant group named “the Rohingya Freedom Army” (Harakat Al-Yaqin) which is responsible for the recent attacks against Myanmar government forces. The attacks resulted in the death of abouth 70 members of government forces and Harakat Al-Yaqin.

The deployment of forces and military equipmet to north and west Myanmar indicate a high intensity of the clashes.

Noor al Islam, head of the Arakan Rohingya National Organisation based in London said that an independent commission should be set up to examine the killing of Muslims in Myanmar, as well as to implement recommendations of the UN in the area.

    “Arakan Rohingya National Organization , based in London ” , ( likely similar to the Syrian one man “observatory” ) would like to claim the Burmese are to blame for the Islamic invaders from Bangladesh .
    As if the “Rohingya Freedom Army” and their attacks on the Myanmar government forces had no relation to the counter attack .

  • The Farney Fontenoy

    The headline: “Rohingya Muslims”, buried in the text: “Rohingya Muslims are a core of the militant group named “the Rohingya Freedom Army””.
    The article is clearly misleading, painting the assault as an attack on innocent muslims when in fact it was a counter-attack on murdering terrorists.
