In the ongoing conflict between the Arakan Army (AA) and the Myanmar military in Arakan state, troubling reports emerge of AA detaining approximately 40 Rohingyas who fled their villages due to the relentless clashes. The Rohingya, including women and children from Buthidaung and Maungdaw Townships, sought refuge in Ah Ngu Maw village, Rathedaung, only to be apprehended by AA forces on Sunday, March 24th, 2024.

According to a source, these individuals are being held captive, with demands for ransom made by the AA for their release. This distressing development sheds light on the vulnerable position Rohingyas find themselves in amid the escalating conflict.

Moreover, there are allegations that both AA and Myanmar military are deliberately targeting Rohingya communities, further exacerbating the humanitarian crisis in the region. Rohingyas, already marginalized, are now being exploited as pawns in this communal strife, highlighting the urgent need for international intervention to protect their rights and ensure their safety.
