International arms trade fueling Rohingya genocide: Analyst


A political commentator believes the “international arms trade” is fueling “genocide” against the Rohingya Muslims, giving Myanmar’s military all the weapons it needs to engage in the “ethnic cleansing” of the minority group.

“One of the largest arms dealers to Burma [Myanmar] has been Israel and the Israeli Supreme Court recently ruled that the Israeli military could continue to provide arms to Burma and this is in the face of Israeli media reporting all of the uses to which these arms are put in ethnically cleansing Rohingya,” Richard Silverstein told Press TV in an interview on Monday.

“So I think that we have to look to what is wrong with the international system that it has not done more to stop this and to hold the Burmese [Myanmar’s] military accountable for these terrible crimes they have committed,” he added.
