Yangon (Chindwin): Nearly 3,000 people have been displaced by the ongoing war in northwest Myanmar, with hundreds having nowhere to live as hundreds of civilian houses are gone in the fire ignited by the military junta troops early this month.
On 02 May, the junta troops reportedly burned down more than 600 houses at the village of Malaytha, which has more than a thousand houses in Ayadaw township of Sagaing region.
Nearly 3,000 people affected by the junta’s recent military operation are displaced in nearby villages and shelters at schools and monasteries with no proper household cooking tools, equipment, and blankets for sleep.
A local committee leader of Malaytha village told Ayadaw Scout that it might take many years to rebuild after more than half of the village had been destroyed by the junta troops this month.
Photos released by Sagaing Scout show the current situation of the displaced people in Ayadaw township of Sagaing region.
