Lay Kay Kaw (လေးကေကော်) in Kayin (ကရင်) State, once designated a ‘town of peace’, has been the site of violent clashes between the Myanmar military and the Karen National Union (KNU), since December 2021. Instead of providing a site of refuge to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), returning refugees and KNU families, fighting in Lay Kay Kaw (လေးကေကော်) has forced many residents to flee for their lives.

Myanmar Witness put together a chronological reconstruction of the clashes between the military and oppositional forces between 13 and 28 December 2021. Mass displacement, cross-border movement, a journalist killed.
