Myanmar, India raze 12 camps of insurgents

The Myanmar Army, in a two-week-long coordinated operation with the Indian Army, has destroyed 10 to 12 camps of insurgent group, Arakan Army, in the Rakhine area. The operation was carried out as the camps posed a threat to the Kaladan multi-mode transport project being built by India, a defence source said on Friday.

“The operation was carried out by Myanmar Army from February 17 to March 2 in which 10-12 insurgent camps were destroyed. The aim was to unsettle them,” the source said, adding that Indian troops did not cross the border.

Before the operation, meetings were held between both armies.
