The influx of Rohingya has restarted following the attacks on the Myanmar Border Guard Police posts in the Rakhine state on 25 August 2017. On 4 September, the Inter-Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) reported that an estimated 123,600 people have entered Bangladesh since 25 August.
It is estimated that 90 per cent of these new arrivals are children, women and the elderly. 87,000 arrivals are currently residing in makeshift settlements and official refugee camps that are extremely overcrowded, while 3,600 arrivals are in host communities. In addition, 33,000 arrivals are in new spontaneous settlements, which are quickly expanding.
People are making huts but the majority of people are staying in open air, suffering from exhaustion, sickness and hunger. Most of them walked 50/60 kilometers for up to six days and are in dire need of food, water and protection.
