Curfew statement

Curfew statement


April 26, 2024


                In the Arakha region, ongoing clashes persist between the terrorist fascist military council and the Arakha Army, notably escalating in Buthidaung, Maungdaw, Ann, and Thandwe cities. The intensification of hostilities in Buthidaung Township is particularly concerning, attributed to the continued efforts to secure control over the Military Operation Command Center (MOC - 15).


                Amidst the fierce fighting and the imminent defeat of the terrorist fascist military council, they are resorting to inciting communal conflict among various communities in the Arakha region, exploiting differences in religion and nationality. Additionally, there is obvious manipulation by the terrorist fascist’s military council, evident in their deliberate training of Muslim extremists to stoke communal tensions and arming terrorist groups within the Muslim community, all aimed at furthering their agenda during the ongoing conflict.


                Conversely, Muslim terrorist factions, whether acting independently or in collaboration with the military council, have initiated a series of attacks against the Arakha Army. Additionally, these groups have engaged in criminal activities such as theft and vandalism of non-Muslim public property, posing a grave threat to the lives and security of residents in the Arakha region. Incidents, including house burnings and direct threats to civilians, have become increasingly prevalent, particularly in the Buthidaung and Maungdaw areas. In response to these escalating threats, a curfew was imposed from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM starting April 26, 2024.


                Residents of the Buthidaung and Maungdaw areas are urged to strictly adhere to the curfew from its initiation until further notice. Non-compliance will result in appropriate disciplinary measures. Residents must notify the nearest ULA administrative authorities for necessary travel and secure permission.
