Amidst political unrest, thousands flee Myanmar

As the violence between the Tatmadaw and anti-coup rebels continues, thousands have been displaced in Myanmar. Rights groups say that at least 22,000 persons are in need of food and shelter. 


Thousands of civilians in Myanmar were forced to flee to neighboring countries, after the conflict between junta forces and defense volunteers escalated. In September, 2021, the shadow government also referred to as the National Unity Government (a coalition of political parties) announced that they will intensify the defensive war.
