New report debunks “terrorist attack” pretext for BurmaArmy operations against Rohingya
A new report by Kaladan Press gives a detailed account of theBurma Army’s August 2017 “clearance operations” in the large fishing village ofAlethankyaw in southern Maungdaw, uncovering new evidence that the operationsagainst the Rohingya were carefully pre-planned, and not a response to“terrorist attacks” on August 25, as claimed by the Burmese government.Continue reading “KPN Press Release: New report debunks “terrorist attack” pretext for Burma Army operations against Rohingya”
The centuries-old fishing community of Alethankyaw in southern Maungdaw is one of hundreds of Rohingya villages attacked and razed by Burmese government security forces during their brutal “clearance operations” that began in August 2017 and which drove over 720,000 refugees into Bangladesh.
The government maintains that the operations were in response to coordinated “terrorist” attacks on August 25
on thirty police posts, including in Alethankyaw, and that villagers burned their own houses and fled. But this report, based on in-depth interviews with thirty refugees from Alethankyaw, including fishermen, farmers, shopkeepers, housewives and teachers, tells a very different story: the nine-day assault by the Burma Army on their village was carefully pre-planned and implemented, and the 1,000-strong “terrorist” attack on Alethankyaw as described by the government did not and could not have happened.
The report “The Killing Fields of Alethankyaw,” based on eyewitness testimony, exposes systematic preparation and execution of the operations by government forces, using military infrastructure built up along the western edge of the Mayu mountain range since 2012 and Kaladan Press gives a detailed account of the Burma Army’s August 2017 “clearance operations” in the large fishing village of Alethankyaw in southern Maungdaw, uncovering new evidence that the operations against the Rohingya were carefully pre-planned, and not a response to “terrorist attacks” on August 25, as claimed by the Burmese government.

An investigative analysis by Kaladan Press Network
Since the start of the ongoing large-scale “clearance” operation against the Rohingya population by Burmese security forces, the Burmese government’s Information Committee and state media have consistently reported that the operation is a response to over 30 coordinated “extremist terrorist” attacks against police stations and outposts in northern Rakhine State on August 25, 2017.
