Fighting between the military council and ethnic armed groups is taking place on a daily basis. It is mainly happening in Kachin and Kayin states where the KIA and KNU are.
Since the military coup, several ethnic armed groups have stated their opposition. Fighting has resumed in those areas since mid-March and is now being fought almost daily by military council forces. Insurgents have been able to harass unarmed civilians. In the fighting with ethnic armed groups, they use air support which means they break the rule of war.
More than 10,000 people have been displaced in ethnic areas by indiscriminate bombings by rebels. At least four protesters were killed in a strike in Monywa today.
