Myanmar military burned Rohingya villages

Satellite images do not lie. What these images show is how the military forces of Myanmar were ordered to burn villages in Rohingya, according to Human Rights Watch.
The organization claims that the timing of the various incidents and their “spacial trends” offer evidence of a pattern that is “consistent with military operations and not random village acts of self-immolation.”
The east-to-west movement of buildings that were burned to the ground is consistent with a military sweep, according to Phil Robertson, the deputy director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia division.
