Thandaungyi, July (25)
The entire displaced population of Yardo village in northern Karen State is in dire need of food, medicine, and basic items, aid workers said.
On July 11, a fierce battle broke out between the KNLA revolutionary forces and the junta army in Yardo Village, Leiktho Town, Thandaungyi Township, bordering Karen State and Shan State, in the territory of KNU Brigade 2.
The regime forces have carried out a series of airstrikes, and bombardments, destroying religious buildings, houses, and roads in the villages of Yardo, Warbankho, Kalayhta, Paralso and Warthokho, and forcing thousands of people to flee, said the workers who are helping the displaced people.
The displaced people are in need of humanitarian aid such as medicine, food, clothing, blankets, mosquito nets, and shelter.
Since the first day of fighting in the Yardo region, the tension between the military council and the KNLA joint forces has remained intense.
Local people fleeing the conflict have not been able to return to their homes until now, according to local sources.
