Maungdaw – Over a dozen of persecuted Rohingya people including babies/children were killed as the Burmese Border Guard Police (BGP) ‘indiscriminately’ opened fire on Rohingya-boats on Sunday (Dec 4) night as they were fleeing from the violence in northern Maungdaw.

More than 15 people are killed and other two boatful of people have gone missing. The police from BGP post at the mouth of the OoShyeKya River opened fire on the victims capsizing their boats as they were fleeing to Bangladesh.

Till date, dead bodies of two babies and a woman under gruesome conditions have been recovered as they have stranded at the bank of Naff River in Myanmar’s side.

“What’s the fault of these babies? What’s the faults of innocent civilians to be killed like this? To see the dead bodies of the innocent children, who haven’t really seen this world, is heart-wrenching to say the least”, said an elderly person in northern Maungdaw.

Most of the victims are reported to be from the village of Raimmabil (YeDwinChaung) in northern Maungdaw.

Excluding this incident and other casualties within Maungdaw since the beginning of the Military offensive in northern Maungdaw on October 9, more than 250 people have been killed while the people were trying to cross the Naff River alone.

Meanwhile, the Burmese military continue their offensives on the Rohingya civilians in northern Maungdaw committing killings, arbitrary arrests, tortures and mass rapes, while plundering their properties and rations and blocking international humanitarian aids to the region leading them to starvation and slow deaths.


Update: Around 35 people got on three paddle-boats on December 4 night. Of them, 6 dead bodies washed up on the bank of the Naff River in Myanmar’s side, other 20 dead bodies were recovered by Bangladeshi fishermen in their maritime territory. So, the total numbers of the casualties make up to 26, five people returned alive to Myanmar, while other four are still missing.

Editor’s Note: The tragic photos of Rohingya babies that got drown and died have reminded us of Alan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy of Kurdish ethnic background, whose image made global headlines after he drowned on 2 September 2015 in the Mediterranean sea.
