Indian Army Carried out A Strike Along Myanmar Border, Naga Insurgents Suffers Damage.


The Indian Army conducted a strike on Naga Insurgent camps along the border with Myanmar. The strike was carried out on Wednesday at 4:45 in the morning near Langkhu village by the Indo-Myanmar border. The team of Indian Para Commandos has happened to inflict severe damage to NSCN-K insurgents during the operation, as informed by the sources to CNN-News18.

The Indian Army had already operated their 1st such strike along the Myanmar border in June 2015.

Previously, the Army carried out the strike and targeted NSCN-K camps a few days after the militants of their group ambushed and killed 18 Indian soldiers in Manipur.

However, a statement has been given by the Eastern Command on twitter stating the team did not invade the international border and no casualties were suffered by the unit.

Army Chief Bipin Rawat spoke earlier this week about the future possibilities of more surgical strikes to be conducted by India “if needed”. He said, “The strikes were a message we wanted to communicate. I think they understood what we meant. These things could follow, if required”.

Meanwhile, the sources have informed that the operation conducted on Wednesday was not in fact a “surgical strike”. “The narrative of today’s operation being a surgical strike is wrong and refuted. The Eastern Command’s tweet truthfully covers the full contours of the operation,” an Army source said to CNN-News18.

A ceasefire was signed between “The National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang and the Indian Government in 2001, but just a month before the truce was up for renewal, it was revoked by NSCN-K on March 27, 2015.

Thereupon, the Indian soldiers were attacked in Nagaland and Manipur in a killing spree by the rebels of NSCN-K Chief SS Khaplang.

On June 4, 2015, this Cadre even staged the deadly ambush in Chandel district of Manipur where 18 Indian soldiers were killed on a convoy of the 6 Dogra Regiment. Soon thereafter, on June 9, Khaplang died in Taka, Sagaing Division of Myanmar.

The Strike witnessed on this Wednesday also happens to be the one year anniversary of India’s surgical strike on terror camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir last year, as a result of the Uri terror attack.
