regime has continued to perpetrate crimes against humanity and
war crimes with total impunity. Reports of serious international
crimes have increased significantly in line with the escalation
of the ongoing Tatmadaw offensives in Kachin, Shan, and Karen
Women and children have been particularly vulnerable.
Tatmadaw soldiers raped and killed women during their offensive
in Kachin and Shan States. The regime also continued to recruit
children into the military in order to offset the steady increase

• At least 600 people forcibly displaced in military attacks
that targeted civilians.
