Two sections of BGP personnel from the Godu Sara bridge check-post and Alay Than Kyaw BGP out post are giving ordered to destroy houses of said village – 22 houses from Du Chee Ya Tan and 13 houses from Khonzabill, Samira more added.

The army and the BGP personnel jointly burned down the homes of Rohingya villagers in northern Maungdaw, but, now, BGP personnel are demolishing Rohingya houses in southern part of Maungdaw. Maybe, it is a new tactic, Hamid, a teacher from Maungdaw south.

 The BGP are destroying homes under different pretext, thus steadily displacing the Rohingya community with a clear intention of finally driving out from the Arakan soil, Hamid said.
