A committee of Rohingya in Mecca oversees the group, which is called Harakah al-Yakin [Faith Movement in Arabic], and 20 Rohingya with international experience in guerrilla warfare are leading operations on the ground, ICG said. Harakah al-Yakin struck first on 9 October, with hundreds of insurgents carrying out coordinated attacks on Myanmar police border posts that killed nine officers in Maungdaw, a frontier township. Four soldiers were killed in clashes on 11 October, while another soldier died and several more were wounded on 12 November before the insurgents retreated to a village, pursued by troops. Several hundred villagers, armed with whatever they had to hand [knives and farming implements], supported the attackers, seemingly spontaneously, ICG said. The military called in air support after a lieutenant-colonel was shot dead, and two helicopter gunships allegedly fired indiscriminately" at villagers trying to flee, according to the report. After the 12 November battles, the military considerably stepped up its operations in Maungdaw, said ICG. Since then, there have been reports of widespread military abuses against Rohingya civilians, including rapes, killings, and disappearances. Rohingya have been fleeing by the tens of thousands into Bangladesh.
