Thousands of Rohingyas from different areas of Maungdaw south and Rathedaung are stranding along the Alaythankyaw sea beach who are trying to cross into Bangladesh now.
Most of the Rohingyas from various areas of Maungdaw south and Rathedaung have already crossed into Bangladesh following brutalities of Myanmar militaries in those areas.
But 10% of Rohingyas in Maungdaw and Rathedaung remained there hoping that the atrocities and arson attacks of Myanmar security forces would be stopped as international community continued calls and condemnation to stop violence.
However, the atrocities and arson attacks of Myanmar security forces have been ongoing and so the remaining Rohingyas are being compelled to flee to Bangladesh to escape further persecution.
Unfortunately, the fleeing Rohingyas from different villages of Maungdaw south and Rathedaung are now stranding along the Alaythankyaw sea beach who are neither able to cross into Bangladesh for being unable to pay boat fares nor return to their respective areas due to ongoing violence, said a victim.
Now the Rohingyas are suffering from starvation as their food rations have ran out since they have been there for days waiting to cross into Bangladesh.
On the other hand, the Rohingya people in various villages of Buthidaung north and south are also facing food and medical crisis as the violence is going on for which they are neither unable to move for their livelihood nor cross over the Mayu mountain range to Maungdaw which is a long away to walk to flee to Bangladesh, according a Rohingya resident.
Moreover, the Rakhine and Daina (Sakma) extremists torched the remaining Rohingya homes at NgaYanChaung (Narainchaung) village of Taungbazar, Buthidaung north on 3 October evening making people homeless and suffer under the open sky, said source.
