Toungoo Situation Update: Htantabin and Thandaunggyi townships, Early 2016 to February 2018

Published date:
Friday, November 30, 2018

From 2016 to the present, the Tatmadaw has been active in Htantabin (Htaw Ta Htoo) and Thandaunggyi (Daw Hpa Hkoh) townships, which has caused the local communities to worry about the possibility of renewed conflict. The Tatmadaw is building a military road, rotating their battalions and patrolling the area. In Htantabin Township, there have been many cases of land confiscations by companies. Many agricultural lands and houses have been flooded by the construction of the Thaut Yay Khat dam.
