Myanmar armed forces backed Rakhine extremists set fire to Rohingya homes at LawetDetPyinChe village tract in Buthidaung North burning down 7 houses and 1 shop on 13 November at around 12.30 am.
Source said to our correspondent, a gang of Rakhine extremists entered the village and set fire to all the homes that were burnt to ashes. Nothing could be brought out by the house owners. All the valuables such as cash money, gold ornaments and other house hold articles were gutted.
Moreover, on 12 November at around 7:00 pm, the Border Guard Police members of camp-23 torched the houses of Rohingya residents at Sagaing village of KyaungTaung union, Buthidaung north.
The house owners were identified as Mohamed Ilias and Abdur Rahman of the village.
Despite international criticism and calls on Myanmar government, the armed forces and the Rakhine extremists together have been carrying out arson attack on Rohingya homes forcing hundreds of thousands of Rohingya flee their homes seeking sanctuary in Bangladesh.
The Rohingyas particularly from Buthidaung areas who wanted to live there expecting the end of violence are leaving their homes now to flee to Bangladesh as the arson attack and all kinds of restrictions are continued against the Rohingya residents.
Rohingyas are crossing the Naf-river into Bangladesh on bamboo makeshift rafts in every day basis since they have no option to live there because of violence in Northern Arakan.
