Indian army conducted a cross border operation against militant groups along the Myanmar border in the country’s northeast. The special forces of the Indian Army entered Myanmar and performed “surgical strikes”. The troops are believed to have neutralized a high number of militants. Carrying out cross border operation is not common practice for India, and the army only mentioned two areas in its own states Nagaland and Manipur.
The Additional DG of the Military Operation said Indians had been in communication with Myanmar authorities regarding the counteraction against the rebel groups. On June 4th, Militants attacked army personnel and 20 brave soldiers died fighting against them. The operation was led by 21 Special Forces (Para), an elite para-commando unit of the Indian Army.
The Indian National Security Advisor is scheduled to visit Myanmar soon. Islamabad has warned India against attempting similar operations in Pakistan, as that would be met with equal force. Militants belonging to the National Socialist Council of Nagaland or NSCN(K), People’s Liberation Army (PLA), United National Liberation Front (UNLF) and Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL) were killed.
