Jerusalem: An Israeli writer and journalist Tsur Shezaf has revealed that Israeli weapons are used in the ethnic cleansing carried out by the Myanmar army against the Rohingya Muslims resulting in the persecution of 700,000 Muslims who were slaughtered and expelled from their country. He revealed this in an article published by the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.
Shezaf claimed that refusing to abide by the UN international boycott resolutions to prevent supplying Myanmar with arms, Israel continues sending various weapons to the Armed Forces of Myanmar, including military technology, by utilizing its army, security services, and military industries.
Palestine Chronicle has quoted Shezaf as saying “Israel and Myanmar have longstanding historical ties, and it is not reasonable that we repeat today the same mistakes that we made in South Africa, during the apartheid regime, with Myanmar which is committing ethnic cleansing crimes. Currently, Israel is contributing to a new tragedy.”
