Myanmar building military bases over Rohingya villages: Amnesty | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Myanmar building military bases over Rohingya villages: Amnesty

Myanmar is building military bases over flattened Rohingya villages, an international rights group said.

Security forces have bulldozed houses and started constructing at least three new security facilities in Myanmar's western Rakhine state, said Amnesty International's Remaking Rakhine State report, which was published on Monday.

The report, which said construction of the three army outposts began in January, is based on satellite imagery and witness statements from Rohingya refugees.

"What we are seeing in Rakhine state is a land grab by the military on a dramatic scale. New bases are being erected to house the very same security forces that have committed crimes against humanity against Rohingya," Tirana Hassan, Amnesty's crisis response director, said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I never thought I would, this lifetime, have to use the phrase, "Watch out for millitant Buddhists, tearing up Muslin minority settlements with impunity!!"

Unfortunately, that is precisely what is happening in Myanmar.
