BROUK, a Rohingya organization based in the UK, has released a report on the ongoing genocide against the Rohingya people amidst the intensifying conflict in Arakan State, calling for urgent international intervention.

According to BROUK’s report, the remaining 600,000 Rohingya in Arakan State are experiencing heightened oppression after the renewed fighting between the Burmese military council and the Arakan Army (AA).

Since the Myanmar military seized power in February 2021, they have denied the Rohingya access to food, water, shelter, sanitation, and medical care in areas under their control. Additionally, the Rohingya have been forcibly conscripted into the military and sent to battlefields against the AA, as reported by BROUK.

BROUK highlighted that hundreds of Rohingya have been killed and many injured due to the intensified conflict between the Myanmar military and the AA. Approximately 200,000 Rohingya refugees in Arakan State are in desperate need of emergency aid. BROUK has called for immediate humanitarian assistance to prevent further loss of life.

BROUK Chairman U Tun Khin noted that since 2020, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has issued an interim order to prevent further acts of genocide.

U Tun Khin also stated that both the Myanmar military and the AA are committing war crimes against the remaining Rohingya in Arakan State, including murder, torture, discrimination, violence, kidnapping, and forced conscription.

At the 56th United Nations Human Rights Council meeting held on June 18, U Tun Khin discussed the extremely dire situation facing the Rohingya. He reported that the AA is forcibly displacing Rohingya from their homes, with more than 200,000 being coerced into leaving their original residences.

BROUK continues to urge the international community to take decisive action to address the humanitarian crisis and protect the rights and lives of the Rohingya people.
