Since November, Rakhine State in Myanmar has been marred by renewed violence between the Myanmar military and the Arakan Army, shattering a year-long unofficial ceasefire and exacerbating an already dire situation for the Rohingya population. This latest wave of conflict is not only deepening the existing humanitarian crisis, but also leading to large-scale displacement of the Rohingya, further compounding the suffering of one of the world’s most persecuted minorities.

Arakan Army’s Vision: Beyond borders, shaping Myanmar’s post-junta future

Dhaka Tribune

Publish : 29 Nov 2023,

  • Myanmar's Rakhine state has been the site of new clashes between the Arakan Army and the junta
  • An alliance of Myanmar rebel forces recently launched an offensive called ‘Operation 1027’
  • Myanmar has been in turmoil since the military ousted a government led by Aung San Suu Kyi in the 2021 coup

The current war in Myanmar differs from past conflicts in the country because ethnic armies are no longer on the defensive, the spokesman for the most powerful ethnic army in Rakhine State told the Irrawaddy in an exclusive interview on Friday.

Junta troops are the ones how are on the defensive now as ethnic armies and resistance groups have unleashed fierce attacks on multiple fronts, Arakan Army (AA) spokesman Khaing Thu Kha explained.

SINCE August 25, 2017, the Myanmar army began a large-scale violence against the Rohingyas in Rakhine State. Rohingya victims said that mobs joined the crackdown of the military junta, forcing more than 700,000 Rohingyas to take refuge in Bangladesh. More than 1.1 million Rohingyas now stay in 34 refugee camps at Teknaf and Ukhia in Cox’s Bazar. The Rohingyas say that the Myanmar army forced them to come to Bangladesh with indiscriminate killing, rape and arson.

Layers of hatred and distrust in Myanmar need to be picked apart with care - and gradually
 
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak broke with the spirit of Asean camaraderie by joining a recent march protesting against Myanmar's treatment of its beleaguered Rohingya, a Muslim minority group within the predominantly Buddhist country. "We want to tell Aung San Suu Kyi enough is enough!" he told the leader of the fellow Asean member, in reference to alleged atrocities some have condemned as "genocide".
 
In contrast, former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan, tasked by Ms Suu Kyi with heading an advisory commission on the situation in Rakhine state where the Rohingya live, urged caution in using the word "genocide". Visiting Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi, meanwhile, offered humanitarian assistance without a public rebuke.

DHAKA – As we approach the six-year mark of the unprecedented 2017 influx of the Rohingya from Rakhine State in Myanmar, I cannot help but wonder if we are really doing enough for the people who sought support to be alive with safety and dignity. It was between August 24-25, 2017, in the weeks that followed escaping death and persecution, when the Rohingya sought refuge in Cox’s Bazar. They had fled to Bangladesh earlier too; numerous times over the last 50 or 60 years. However, the influx of 2017 was significantly different. The violence had been unleashed with no bars held. The genocide was being committed and it took years to get the global leadership to acknowledge this.

Justice More Important Than Ever as Rohingya Mark Bleak Anniversary

THE I DIPLOMAT
By Tun Khin
August 25, 2023

“It is high time that the world takes action to end the genocide against the Rohingya, starting with supporting the international justice efforts.” 

It was six years ago today, on August 25, 2017, that the Myanmar military poured into Rakhine State and unleashed unimaginable violence on my people, the Rohingya. Over the course of a few weeks, soldiers and their proxies killed thousands of women, men, and children, burned whole villages to the ground, and drove close to 800,000 people to flee into Bangladesh.

It is a source of shame for the world that six years later, not only do the Rohingya remain a people on the brink of extinction, but the architects of the genocide against us remain in power in Myanmar. Despite this, Rohingya and the people of Myanmar have largely been forgotten on the world stage, with other crises dominating global headlines. It is now high time that the world takes action to end the genocide against the Rohingya, starting with supporting the international justice efforts.
