The BBC and other Western media are now admitting the role played by Muslim insurgents in the Myanmar/Rohingya situation. The insurgents are the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA). Of course they will end the ceasefire as soon as they are strong enough.




BBC:

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.
