Rohingya Refugee From No Man’s Land Killed in Myanmar Military’s Landmine
By The Rohingya Post
Gundum, Bangladesh: A 25-year-old Rohingya man from No Man’s Land between the Myanmar-Bangladesh Border was killed in a Landmine planted by Myanmar Military.
Moni Ullah, son of Hala Miah (commonly known as Halu) went to a forest in No Man’s Land to collect bamboo in the early morning.
He was killed at around 12:20 pm local time on Sunday when the Landmine was activated.
Moni Ullah’s colleagues who went to the jungle, were notified by his family that he has not returned home.
His friends and neighbours set out to look for him in the forest on Monday and his body was brought to the camp in No Man’s Land at 11:30 am.
Moni Ullah leaves behind his one year old daughter and parents in the camp.
He has fled Taung Pyo Let Yar, Maungdaw, Rakhine when Myanmar Military launches the campaign of genocide against Rohingya in 2017.
Since then, he was taking shelter in No Man’s Land where extremely limited humanitarian assistance is provided to Rohingya refugees, which forces many Rohingya to seek for bamboo and wood for shed repairs and household usages.
Myanmar Military has planted landmines along the borders targeting the fleeing Rohingya civilians and the movement of refugees in the area.
