A war-torn refugee camp in Htee Lin, home to more than 700 people, was destroyed.

A war-torn refugee camp in Htee Lin, home to more than 700 people, was destroyed.


Due to the Mocha storm, Magwe residents said that the entire camp where more than 700 refugees live was flooded on the night of May 14th near Htan Pin Gone Village in Htee Lin Township.



There are around 200 temporary tents in this refugee camp. A resident said that every time the military council army cleared the area in the western part of Htee Lin Township, they entered Htan Pin Kone village, so they built a refugee camp in the west of the village and the villagers fled.

"Every time the column goes to the west side of Htee Linn, we pass near the palm tree hill, so the village is quite insecure, so the whole village moves to the place. That's why there are more of them."



He said that on May 13th and 14th, continuous rains flooded the Maw River south of Htan Pin Kone village and flooded the refugee camp.

There are around 250 houses in Htan Pin Kone Village, and almost the entire village is avoiding the war by building temporary tents near the Maw River on the west side of the village.



Due to storm Mocha, floods occurred and houses in townships in Sagaing and Magwe regions were submerged. Plantations were also destroyed and some civilians were killed.
