Armed conflict continued to take place both between the Tatmadaw and armed groups, and among armed groups, notably in Shan, Kachin and Rakhine States. In the last quarter of the year, fighting between the Tatmadaw and the Arakan Army intensified in central Rakhine and southern Chin States. Attacks by Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army elements against Government forces were also registered. This resulted in the continuous displacement of civilians across the two states. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya, half of whom are children, remained in Rakhine State, and those displaced in Shan and Kachin States continue to face serious hardships.
