The spokesperson of the United Nations has strongly condemned the killing of civilians in Myanmar. He has condemned the killing of people in Rakhine state and Sagaing area by the Myanmar army. The situation in Myanmar has been quite worrying since the military coup. The Secretary-General of the United Nations has not only expressed concern over this but has also appealed to find a solution to this in a planned manner.

Violence broke out between the army and the Arakan Army in Myanmar's Rakhine state, leaving thousands of people homeless. This violence has increased significantly in recent days. According to media reports, most of the attacks have been on the minority Rohingya Muslims. Many generations of Rohingya Muslims have been living in Rakhine province for a long time. Despite this, they have not been able to get citizenship. Lakhs of Rohingya Muslims have taken refuge in Bangladesh after 2017.

About 2 lakh 26 thousand people displaced

The ethnic targeting and subsequent persecution of Rohingya Muslims in western Myanmar's Rakhine province is deeply disturbing. The UN has called for steps to be taken for the betterment of people of all communities. During the recent attacks, some people from this community were not only beheaded but their houses were also burned down.

According to the UN refugee agency, 2 lakh 26 thousand Rohingya Muslims have been displaced so far. All these people are now looking for a place to stay. The United Nations has already reported such incidents where not only people were made to disappear in Myanmar but unarmed villagers were shot at. There is also a shortage of food items in Myanmar. The United Nations says that the situation may become even worse in the coming few months.
