Karen villagers are under attack!
Thousands of villagers are fleeing attacks by the Burmese military.
New attacks in Lay Kay Kaw using heavy artillery are forcing thousands of villagers to flee. Some are crossing the river to Thailand while others are hiding in unsafe areas in the jungle.
The new villagers fleeing come on top of around 80,000 Karen villagers forced to flee bombings and attacks by the military since the military coup on 1st February.
