Comments: Since the start of November 2021, attacks have intensified in the Boucle du Mouhoun, mainly in Sourou province. Following a succession of attacks between 4 and 16 November, mainly targeting security posts and public service personnel in the commune of Di. These attacks destroyed the already weakened security in the region, leading to a new wave of displacements from DI. On 18 November, the GOA took the opportunity of the poor security coverage resulting from these repeated attacks to threaten the population with reprisals for those who did not leave DI and its surroundings. The population, fearing for their safety, left the commune of DI and the surrounding area en masse, to seek refuge mainly in Tougan, Gnessa, Toma, D├ędougou, Ouagadougou etc.
