After the coup d'état, more than 400 civilians were killed in Kayah (Kareni) state, according to the Karenni Social Association Network.



The network of Karenni social organizations is compiling information to be submitted as evidence in international courts that the coup military council targeted civilians.

They also said that since February 2021, the coup d'état, there are more than 230,000 refugees who have fled their homes amid the fighting in Kayah State.


KhuKoYal, who is in charge of the Karenni Social Association Network, said, "There are a lot of massive human rights violations involving airstrikes on religious buildings, civilian areas, and IDP camps. One day, we have to get to the level of how we can prosecute from this information."

Despite the recent fierce fighting in Kayah State, the military council often reports in the newspapers that there is no more fighting in Kayah State and that residents are returning home.


Due to the fighting in Kayah state, the locals have fled to the nearby jungles. Aid workers say more than 9,000 residents are fleeing to Thailand.
