BHRN said it will put countless lives in danger and defy orders from the International Court of Justice.
The Rakhine State's Ministry of Security and Border Affairs issued a directive on 24 June, stating that the Tatmadaw will conduct clearance operations against Arakan Army in Kyauktan administrative circle, Rathaeduang Township, said BHRN.
BHRN Executive Director, Kyaw Win, said “The announcement of new clearance operations is extremely concerning.”
“Burma is putting countless Rakhine and Rohingya civilian lives at risk needlessly and in defiance of the ICJ’s provisional measures to prevent further harm to the Rohingya,” he added.
He also said, “These attacks are also being done despite calls from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to halt conflict as nations struggle to address Covid- 19 and ensure the health of their citizens.”
