Karenni soldiers tend to a seriously wounded comrade during fighting in the town of Loikaw on November 27, 2023, during weeks of heavy clashes against the country’s State Administration Council (SAC) for control of the capital of Kayah (Karenni) state, eastern Myanmar (Burma). This rebel fighter was gravely wounded by shrapnel amid intense mortar fire during the battle for the police station. He was not expected to survive. What began as fighting in remote forests has evolved into urban warfare, vying for provincial towns—a sign of how far the revolution has come. But such advances incur a steep cost, as thousands have been killed and at least two million have been displaced, according to the United Nations.
