It is alleged that the Myanmar military’s LID 99 set fire to eight villages following PDF activity in the area. Myanmar Witness was able to verify, to varying levels, six of the eight fires. They occurred in villages in close proximity to one another between 20-25 April 2023. According to media sources, the fires and alleged presence of Myanmar military troops in Sagaing township displaced tens of thousands of people in the area. These events coincided with reports of beheadings and torture across Sagaing. It is alleged that these too were carried out by the LID 99.
