Recall that the conflict in Rakhine between Rohingya and the indigenous people of the state who practice Buddhism has existed for many decades. The escalation of the conflict began with the transfer of power in Myanmar from the military to a civilian government and the beginning of democratic reforms.
Since the end of August, the Myanmar security forces have been conducting an operation against Islamic militants of the Rohingya (Rohingya) ethnic group, which began after the militants conducted a coordinated attack on several police posts and army barracks in Rakhine State. As a result, about 400 people died.
