Day after Myanmar hit, Army and Government suggest more in offing
Each day following the Army carried out strikes through the Myanmar border at militant groups suspected being behind the June 4 attack on the Army convoy, sources said today more and more such operations could not be ruled out given the “scale” of the Northeast militant infrastructure throughout the border.
Sources said you'll find about 20 camps which are likely targets. Officials also maintained ambiguity in the Tuesday operation saying “all seriously isn't over”.
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is predicted to check out Myanmar soon to discuss further “joint action” contrary to the insurgents. Indian Ambassador to Myanmar Gautam Mukhopadhaya today reviewed the post-operation situation with senior officials in the Myanmar government in the capital Nay Pyi Taw.
Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar had visited Myanmar unannounced on May 22 prior to fighting breaking out with the NSCN (K) to set cross-border security cooperation plans. Officials said his visit hasn't been linked to yesterday’s operations.
In details who have now begun to emerge, sources declared no less than 20 militants were killed and 11 “seriously injured” inside the operations that had been carried out by commandos “by walking”. Interestingly, the “men” picked up to the operation were ones with “North-Eastern features” so they really could go.
The operation was led by 21 Special Forces (Para), an elite para-commando unit from the Indian Army. Sources declared that though India’s intention to stage retaliatory strikes was distributed to Myanmar days prior to the attack, data on specific targets was “neither called for nor given.”

Sources said that one team of 21 Special Forces, based at Leimakhong, slithered down from two Advanced Light helicopters onto militat camps in Myanmar territory. Although these camps were identified targets, their location was confirmed by UAV missions executed from Imphal. No less than three UAV missions were conducted hebdomadally and latest images were compared to previous ones to verify how the camps were still occupied.
