Maungdaw, Arakan– “Rakhine 969 extremists are ultra-active nowadays in northern Maungdaw. They gather at the monastery of “Taung-Paw” in the village of Kyein-Chaung (Bawli Bazaar)” says an eye-witness. Similary, it has also been learnt that 969 Rakhine terrorists gather everyday at the monastery of Myothit village of Nga-Kura (Nagpura) village tract and at the monastery of Kyan-Pyin village, northern Maungdaw.
These terrorists sneak into the nearby Rohingya villages at night. They throw fire-causing chemical powder on Rohingya homes, try to torch them (Rohingya homes) and also try to beat and kill Rohingyas.
-On 18th March 2014 night, some of those terrorists attempted to torch Rohingya homes in the village of Ridhaa of Aung Sit Pyin village tract, in the village of Ywa Thit of the Kyein Chaung village tract and in the village of Chung-Gaung of Laung-Doong village tract. However, Rohingya people in charge of the sentry duty and security of the villages together successfully prevented them from doing destructions in their (Rohingyas’) villages.
-At 8PM on 21st March 2014, the headmaster of the Kyein-Chaung High School and the husband of the Dr. Nu Kethi San (incharge of Kyein Chaung Hospital) gathered some 20 Rakhine terrorists. They switched off the electric light at the east of hospital premise so that the terrorists could plot secretly. However, they could not harm any Rohingya homes due to the Rohingyas on the duty of the security of the village. Fearing attacks by Rakhine terrorists, Rohingyas, nowadays, need to be on high alert day and night.
-On the same day (i.e. 21st March 2014), while Rohingya men were performing Friday prayer, some Rakhine terrorists attempted to torch some Rohingya homes in the village of ‘Padaka Dewan Ali,” northern Maungdaw. However, many Rohingya women gathered and altogether forced them (the terrorists) to flee.
-Besides, between 3PM and 4PM yesterday, some flying balloon planes with the fire-causing chemical material inside (Read Details HERE) were seen flying over the village of Myoma Kayintan (Shidda Fara). Some Rohingyas managed to catch one of them. Pictures are shown below.
