Several Rohingya residents are critically wounded and many houses were burnt down as clashes between Myanmar Security Forces and ethnic Rakhine’s Arakan Army (AA) enter into September.
Rohingya civilians trapped in many battle-fields across Rakhine State, have fallen the victims of the clashes, sustaining major injuries, costing many lives, fleeing for safety and seeing destruction of houses and properties.
On August 29, two Rohingya women were hit with bullets in Sin Thay Pyin village tract of Buthidaung township. The victims are identified as Daw Rashida Begum (20), daughter of Abushama; and Daw Lalu (20) daughter of Younus.
Following the injuries at the hands of governmental forces, the women were reportedly denied transportation to seek emergency medical treatment at a nearby hospital. Later, they were taken to Buthidaung General Hospital by their families and relatives. Their conditions remain critical.
There are also three more Rohingya with bullet-injuries receiving treatment at the hospital from the previous clashes.
