Kedatangan pengungsi hari ini merupakan gelombang terbesar yang ada sejak tahun 2015. Indonesia sendiri memang dikenal sebagai salah satu negara tujuan yang diincar kaum Rohingya. Sebelumnya, pada akhir Juni, sebanyak 97 pengungsi Rohingya ditemukan terombang-ambing di atas kapal motor yang rusak di perairan Aceh Utara. Mereka akhirnya diselamatkan nelayan setempat.
