Rohingya Muslim insurgents in Myanmar have declared a one-month unilateral ceasefire to ease the humanitarian crisis in northern Rakhine state.
The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa) said the truce would start on Sunday, urging Mynamar’s army to lay down weapons as well.
Arsa attacks on police on 25 August led to a ferocious military response.
About 290,000 Rohingya are said to have fled Rakhine and sought shelter over the border in Bangladesh since then.
This is a military setback for the “Rohingya” not a humanitarian crisis. It is yet another effort by invader Muslims to undermine a nation’s sovereignty, as we see in the Philippines, Thailand, the Middle East and wherever else Islam is allowed a foothold. Burma is right to expel them. Other nations, current virtue signalling aside, will eventually be forced to follow suit.
