Fighting broke out today in Lay Kay Kaw Myothit, where tensions were high yesterday. The military council was using heavy artillery to get them out of the city, and the artillery shells fell on the Thai side because it was so close to the border. Auxiliary council troops were also affected by the attack.
Local people are running day and night. The number of refugees has exceeded 3,000 in 24 hours. More than a thousand fled to Thailand. In the winter, they have to run around with only one piece of clothing on, making it difficult for them. The war is just beginning, so it will be take much time. Emergency assistance is needed for refugees.
