The entire village of Dinggar Village in Dawthponeyan Township, Momauk Township was burned down.


On October 15, residents said that Dinggar village, which has more than twenty houses on the Myitkyina-Bhamo road in Momauk Township, Dawthponeyan, Kachin State was burned down by the military council.


A local resident said that the battalion under the 88th Division, which was marching from Bhamo towards Namsanyan, entered Dinggar village and burned down the houses. "The column that went towards Aung Jar spent the night in the village. The next morning, the whole village was burned down. The residents of the village only come back during the day. At night, they went to sleep at Dawthponeyan.”

The residents said that since the beginning of July this year, after the battles intensified near Laiza, because of the frequent presence of the convoy, Dinggar villagers fled to the town of Dawthponeyan. It was said that there were more than 20 houses in Dinggar village, around a hundred people living there, and because the locals were afraid of the army, they returned to the village to work in the fields during the day, and hid in safety at night.

Locals said that on October 12, nearly twenty homes were destroyed when the Military Council troops destroyed the village of Lonjunyan in Dawthponeyan.
