Two Rohingya women killed after Myanmar troops shells a Rohingya village

On Saturday a Rohingya village was shelled by Myanmar troops. Two women, one of them was pregnant were killed and seven other people were injured in the attack. The incident took place two days after the U.N’s highest court ordered the country to protect the minority.

Maung Kyaw Zan who is a national member of parliament for Buthidaung township in northern Rakhine state told that in the middle of the night the shells fired from a nearby garrison hit king Taung village.

Ethnic rebels and government troops have been battling in the state for over a year.
The military blamed all the responsibilities on the ethnic rebels saying that they attacked a bridge early in the morning.

In 2017, the UN said that a military crackdown was executed with genocidal intent and because of that 730,000 Rohingya Muslims were forced to flee Northern Rakhine state.

Recently the rebel group, Arakan army, and the military have been fighting, dozens have been killed and thousands have been displaced in the conflict.

The Muslims of Rohingya still in Rakhine are treated with discrimination, they’re unable to travel freely, cannot access education and health easily, caught in the middle of the fighting.

Two military spokesmen did not answer phone calls from Reuters seeking comment on Saturday’s deaths. In a statement posted on the Russian social media network VK, the army confirmed the deaths but blamed the Arakan Army, saying its artillery had hit the village during clashes.
