World' s largest general scientific society In 2007, the first analyses were carried out on the basis of accounts that the Toungoo district in the south was the site of an intensified army operation in 2006 and continued until 2007, which included the establishment of army camps and the building of dams and roads. The Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG) covered assaults in line with these trends, as confirmed by the Free Burma Rangers (FBR) and the Thailand Burma Border Consortium (TBBC).

Some of the towns were burnt and bombed with gunfight. Others were left behind, probably because of acts of war. Specifically, there was a concentration of naval activities along the east-west route from the Pegu Division in the western part to the Karenni State in the eastern part, which led through the major Bawgali Gyi housing estate, and the south-eastern Bawgali Gyi Strait to BiSahKee and Papun District.

A number of embankment building in the region also led to terrorist attack, as FBR and KHRG claim. Archive photos from May and March 2004 were cross-referenced with a new compilation from February 2006. The picture analyses localized three settlements that were clearly disrupted, left or damaged (see pictures 14 - 16) and also identifies army bases (see pictures 17 - 19).

The Free Burma Rangers and the Thailand Burma Border Consortium again in 2008 once again identify Toungoo as a breeding ground for assaults and expulsions. Pictures from 2004, 2006 and 2009, each of which covers part of the Toungoo region, were cross-referenced to obtain results. Fourteen areas of settlements were detected which showed a strong decline in the number of visual patterns in the pictures taken after the announced assault.

All of the ruined towns in pictures one to five were within a radius of six kilometres. The six to fourteen kilometres from the first group in the pictures, while they are twenty-five kilometres away, were similarly close. Occasionally, farming activities near these communities show evidence of abandonment, a phenomena also backed up by experience with them.

The pictures 20 - 29 are from the 2009 survey. This picture from February 2007 shows a close-up of the possible army encampment in picture 18.
