Myanmar armed forces have set devastating fire to Rohingya homes in Taungpyo left northern village in Maungdaw north today, 10 November 2017.
Source said to our correspondent, military and BGP forces went to the village and set fire to the homes of Rohingya residents forcing them leave their homes.
Now the Rohingya villagers are taking shelter at the zero point of BD-Myanmar borders near the Taungbru of Naikhonchury, Bandarban as their homes have been burnt down.
The Rohingyas have no option to live there in their village except fleeing to Bangladesh, said a Rohingya resident who is at the zero point in the fleeing group.
On the other hand, some fleeing Rohingyas on bamboo raft from Payoungbingyi (Dhangkhali) beach of Maungdaw south have been dragged back from half of the way while they were crossing the Naf-river to Bangladesh.
Now the fate of the Rohingyas who have been pulled back to Myanmar side is unknown, said an eye witness.
The Rohingyas fled from Sindiprang village of Buthidaung south to cross into Bangladesh due to ongoing systematic persecution and brutalities of Myanmar armed forces.
Despite international continuous pressure and calls on Myanmar government to stop violence, arson attack and various kind of persecutions against Rohingya Muslims have still been continued by Myanmar military and BGP forcing tens of thousands of Rohingya from Northern Arakan specially now from Buthidaung areas flee to Bangladesh to escape persecution, says a Rohingya activist.
It is a matter of great concern that the arson attack and other persecutions have still been going on against the Rohingyas despite several calls from international community, he added.
