Karenni (Kayah) State is among the many states and regions in Myanmar which have been overwhelmed by expanding military operations. This joint briefing paper produced by the Karenni Human Rights Group (KnHRG) and the Network for Human Rights Documentation – Burma (NDBurma), with supporting data from a local Karenni women’s organization, finds evidence of crimes against humanity and war crimes perpetrated by the military junta.

The authors condemn the ongoing escalation of targeted attacks against civilians and call for an immediate end to the violence, a global arms embargo, referral to the International Criminal Court, targeted sanctions and humanitarian aid to refugees.
