In Khin Oo, more than 6,000 people fled due to the military council troops entered villages.


Residents said that on the morning of September 1st, more than 6,000 civilians in five villages were fleeing because the Military Council's column raided the villages in the southern part of Khin Oo Township, Sagaing.


A local said that this morning, the KhaMaYa (701, 702, 708) column, which is more than a hundred strong, came out of Launglon village and raided Letpanhla village. "Yesterday, they spent the night at Laungshey. At around 7 o'clock this morning, the column had already arrived in Letpanhla village. And I think that they will go to Shwebo. Currently, all the nearby villages are fleeing." He says that as the column entered, residents of villages such as Launglon, Letpanhla, Letpankyi, Padwin, and Yathan are fleeing in the rain.



According to the local defense forces, regional defense forces attacked a military unit between Launglon and Letpanhla village with mines on August 31, and the military column burned down a hut in the southern part of Launglon village. According to residents and defense groups, during the two-and-a-half years of the coup, around 6,000 homes in 76 villages in Khin Oo Township were burned and more than 30,000 civilians were left homeless.


According to the latest statement of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNICHA), nearly 800,000 (778,900) residents of the Sagaing Division fled their homes after the military coup.
