Yet another round of fleeing is on in Myanmar as fighting has renewed between country’s armed forces and ethnic insurgents.

It is said that thousands of people have fled amid this fighting.

This was also confirmed by the United Nations.

More than 4,000 people have been displaced in Myanmar’s northernmost state of Kachin.

The province is said to be close to China.

UN estimates that there are still many civilians who remain trapped in conflict-affected areas.

It has expressed concern for the safety of civilians, including pregnant women, the elderly, small children and people with disabilities.

Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi said making peace was her priority when she took office in 2016 after decades of military rule but progress has been slow.
