Fierce fighting between Myanmar's military and ethnic armies has spread to different regions, displacing over 200,000 people, according to the UN. The conflict, which began with the "Three Brotherhood" Alliance's offensive in late October, has resulted in gains for the rebels in various key cities. The fighting has also extended to Rakhine state and Kayah state, causing civilian casualties and blocking transportation routes. Humanitarian assistance is continuing in some areas, but needs in other regions are increasing and require an immediate response. Over 1.6 million civilians have been displaced since the military coup in February 2021.
