The Indian Army on Tuesday conducted a cross-border revenge attack in Myanmar by killing nearly a dozen militants said to be involved in the massacre of 18 soldiers last week in Manipur's Chandel district
Reports said the strike was done in coordination with the Myanmar regime after the clearance to conduct the surgical strikes were given at the highest level in the government. "Any threat to safety, security and national integrity will meet with a similar response," an Army spokesman said.
However, a report in the Economic Times claimed India will not admit to carrying out the rare cross-border operation.
Reports earlier this week also said India had given Myanmar phone intercepts and location details of at least two officials from the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), who were reportedly in touch with the top leadership of insurgent group, NSCN-Khaplang, suspected to be behind the killing.
Army sources in the Eastern Command had said the ambush was carried out by 15 members of the Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL), a Meitei outfit formed in 1994. The KYKL is closely aligned to the NSCN-K that broke off a 14-year ceasefire with the government this April.
Another part of the world heating up under Obama?
They wouldn’t happen to be Muslim, would they?
The Indians are trying to impose the metric system on them.
I must be the only person that still calls it Burma.
That was funny
Just a little levity to break the monotony.
That is what we all should call it.
If the Chinese are behind this, watch out. But unfortunately, our media won’t report this activity. Watch India get closer to all of SE Asia and encircle China.
India and Viet Nam are developing closer ties including agreements on military cooperation.
According to the article, they are Meiteis, a dominant ethnic group in Manipur.
Manipur is about 50% Hindu, 35% Christian and 8% Muslim.
Suspect this group are commies.
That would be pretty funny. India claiming territory because it too was conquered by the Brits. They get Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan too!
> I must be the only person that still calls it Burma.
I still call it Burma, and a pediatrician friend who is Burmese also calls it Burma.
I love it. India and Israel are perfect allies.
Burma/Myanmar is one of the Chinese buffer puppet states. I am surprised the got permission to do this raid.
