Tanintharyi, March (14)

More than 30,000 people were forced to flee their homes as a result of the conflict, which intensified after Tanintharyi Region was placed under martial law, reported FE5 Tanintharyi, a research group.

The number of displaced people has reached more than 30,000, of whom 28,000 have not been able to return home.

A FE5 Tanintharyi official told Than Lwin Times that with the increase in the number of IDPs, there are challenges for food, medicine, and humanitarian aid.

The IDPs live in nearby forests, orchards, and monasteries, and as the number of people grows, so does the demand for food, medicine, and personal hygiene.

Palaw Township has the highest number with over 27,000 IDPs, followed by Tanintharyi Township with over 3,000, Dawei Township with over 200, Launglon with around 150, and Kawthaung with over 150.

But the military council’s strict restrictions on the transportation of food and medicine have made it difficult to help refugees, said the aid workers who assist the IDPs. News-Than Lwin Times
