Airstrike on monastery


Mae Kasa


Airstrike damages Dhamma Rakkhita Monastery

On 6 October 2022, a military fighter jet allegedly bombed Mae Kasa village, about 10 kilometres east of the Phayar Taung military post which had been captured by the KNLA a few weeks earlier. Myanmar Witness has identified and geolocated imagery which shows significant damage to a building in the Dhamma Rakkhita Monastery grounds. The monastery grounds had provided a site of refuge for internally displaced people.
