Fires Let Yet Ma

According to local residents interviewed by Burmese media and multiple social media posts, forces aligned to the State Administration Council (SAC) set fire to multiple homes in Let Yet Ma village (coordinates 21.758579, 94.934137) on the afternoon of 14 May 2022. The attack reportedly followed recent fighting between SAC forces and the local PDF near the village. While the scale of the destruction meant it was not possible to verify images reportedly showing the burnt structures (posted by Khit Thit Media), NASA FIRMS fire data shows extensive fire events in the village on the 14 May 2022, and remote sensing shows the scale of the damage to the village.
