Jihadist violence emptied an entire village of nearly 8,000 people in northern Burkina Faso over the weekend, Radio France Internationale (RFI) reported on Wednesday.
Roughly 7,600 people fled the village of Solhan in Yagha province this week for Sebba, the capital of Yagha, located nine miles away, according to RFI. Others headed to the nearby village of Sampelga, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
The article goes on to state the following:
Solhan “has been completely emptied of people,” Burkina Faso Communications Minister Ousseni Tamboura told reporters on June 9. The displaced people from Solhan “include more than 2,000 children” the UNHCR reported on June 8.
The exodus occurred after Jihadist terrorists arrived about 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning and stormed the village of Solhan, burning multiple buildings, including homes, the market, the school and the hospital, and killing at least 138 people.
The attack was reported as the deadliest in Burkina Faso by jihadists since Islamist terrorists launched an insurgency in the country in 2015, Breitbart stated.
