The European Rohingya Council (ERC) condemns in the strongest possible terms all forms of crimes being perpetrated against civilians and their properties in Arakan State, Myanmar.

As a community which has experienced the systematic mass destruction of villages, properties and places of worship during the campaigns of genocide in 2016 and 2017, the Rohingya community is disturbed and traumatised to witness the attack on civilians and the destruction of their properties in the recent months.

It is imperative that the civilians and their properties regardless of race and religion must be protected at all time.

Targeting civilian population and civilian property not only violates the International Humanitarian Law (IHL), and also  creates and inflames tensions between the two communities in Arakan State.

The European Rohingya Council calls upon every stakeholder to protect and respect all civilian lives, their properties and psychological wellbeing with humanity.
