More than 10,000 civilians fled due to a military attack in Ye-U Township

More than 10,000 civilians fled due to a military attack in Ye-U Township


Residents said that in the early morning of August 5th, over 10,000 civilians from 12 villages fled their homes due to the clearing of the area by the Military Council in Ye-U Township, Sagaing. Residents of 12 villages such as Hluawhpyu, Hlyawhkone, Zigon, Pauktaw, Htantaw, Chon, Myogyi, Tinteinyan, and Magyeene villages are fleeing.



A local said that a force of almost 80 people is currently raiding the Tinteinyan village. "There are more than 1,000 houses in Tinteinyan village. There are over 4,000 residents. Since the convoy is entering Tinteinyan, they have to avoid all the nearby villages. Now it is the rainy season, so they avoid the nearby villages that have not yet entered the column. If the column leaves, they will return to their villages." He said that when the convoy raided villages, they often took away valuables. On August 4th, military council troops raided Ywartharlay Village in Ye-U Township and took away valuables including gold and money.


According to a report released by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) on July 15, there are more than 16 million people who have been displaced by the conflict since the military coup. Of these, 778,900 war refugees are from Sagaing.
