The India military has, for the first time, carried out a cross-border anti-militant commando operation in Myanmar. The operation was a retaliatory response to the brutal massacre of Indian soldiers by the militants a week earlier.
The Indian Army confirmed it had successfully carried out joint operations with Myanmar against the militants who executed the deadly attack on a convoy of 6 Dogra Regiment in Manipur last week. The attack, executed with military precision but with barbaric intent, had left 18 Indian soldiers charred to death, besides injuring 15 civilians. Despite the disadvantage, Indian soldiers continued to fire in response, killing at least two militants.
