While India was glued to Balakot airstrike, army carried out mega strikes along Myanmar border


While the world — and India — focused on Pulwama terror attack and the Balakot airstrike carried out in its aftermath, the Indian Army carried out a mega operation to eliminate threats posed by insurgents along the Indo-Myanmar border.

Joint operations between the Indian and Myanmar armies were carried out from February 17 and March 2 to thwart a threat to a mega infrastructure project vital for the Northeast. The threat was from an insurgent group in Myanmar.

The operation was carried out when the world was focused on the Indian Air Force airstrike in Pakistan’s Balakot. The airstrike targeted Jaish-e-Mohammad’s largest terror camp and was seen as a response to the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force jawans were martyred.
