At least 20000 #Rohingyas were murdered by #Myanmar security forces
A Mro ethnic anonymous police officer who has been very close to Rohingya friends and a very helpful person confirmed that at least twenty thousand Rohingyas were murdered by security forces from 25th August to 31st August 2017.
The Mro officer from Rathedaung of Arakan always helps his Rohingya friend Soe Naing. When violence occured in Rathedaung, the officer regularly calls his friend for up date. Yesterday, they had a good conversation. Soe Naing asked his friend about the number of victims in three township.
"I estimated fifty thousands might be killed in recent violence." said Soe Naing. The officers said it is very easy to know the actual number of victims by multiplying hundreds of the numbers released by the official government report.
Then the numbers of murdered victims would be thirty seven thousand because senior general Min Aung Hlaing office of Nay Pyi Taw announced that three hundred seventy attackers were caught dead. said Soe Naing.
"I don't think so. I estimated ten thousand but I am not sure about all places. Dead toll might not be more than twenty thousand." responded the officer.
Thousands of Rohingyas' homes were torched in Rathedaung, Buthidaung and Maungdaw that cause more than hundred thousands internally displaced. Myanmar government repeatedly alleges that Bengali terrorists attacked the security posts, killed Rohingyas, burnt houses and ran away. This accusation is exactly the same term used by Thein Sein government after State's sponsored genocidal violence against Rohingya in 2012 and 2013. Muhammad Sharif from Taung Bazar of Buthidaung commented.
From 25th August to 31st August, more than forty Rohingya villages were targeted by security forces.
The Mro officer praised some Rohingya villagers who standed in front of security forces with wooden sticks while they were being shot by the security forces. He expressed his concern that intensive atrocities might turn the victims to wrong way.
