Maungdaw – The Burmese military brutally raped 8 Rohingya women at ‘Oo Kye Kyar (Bura Shiddafara) village in northern Maungdaw during a raid on Wednesday (October 19) morning, a local source confirms.

Besides, the military looted money, gold and other ornaments from many women taking advantage of the situation that the (Rohingya) men went into hiding to escape arbitrary arrests, tortures and killings (by the military).

“They conducted raid on each and every house. During the raids, they brutally raped 8 Rohingya women. Some rape victims are still in miserable conditions as they can’t get medical treatment.

“On the other hand, in some houses, the military forced women to take off their ornaments and give away to them. In some other houses, they just brutally pulled away earrings from the ears of the women and chains from their necks,” said a local resident of the village.

The victims of the rapes are:

  • Z…… (Daughter of) ? ……, 35
  • F…… (Daughter of) N……, 15
  • H…… (Daughter of) A……, 18
  • N…… (Daughter of) A……, 20
  • T…… (Daughter of) R……, 35
  • N……. (Daughter of) Z……., 35
  • A…… (Daughter of) N……., 15
  • R…… (Daughter of) G……., 35

Two more women are feared to have been raped by the military, which is yet to be confirmed.

“On pretext of ‘Cleansing Region, the Burmese military is continuously committing atrocities, rapes and other serious crimes against the innocent Rohingya civilians”, said the above-mentioned resident of ‘Oo Kye Kyar’, “is Raping innocent women of the ethnic minorities really required in the military operations of Burmese regime?”
