Indian special forces carry out cross border operation into Myanmar. Several militants who carried out Manipur attack killed.

A very rare cross border operation by India.

The best part about the cross border operation into Myanmar? All our boys are back safe. Militant casualty high.

Indian Special Forces unit involved in blistering strike in Myanmar. Militants didn't know what hit them. Army press conference at 6pm.

:) not sure if it was even an SF unit, a typical Ghatak unit can easily conduct such an op. They probably send in Ghataks from the same battalions that were killed in last week's ambush, usually such missions are given to the affected unit, this allows for morale to be restored.

Bold operation by Indian Army: Many militants involved in Manipur ambush neutralised in Myanmar


NEW DELHI: Indian Army is believed to have carried out a rare cross-border operation into Myanmar, to avenge the killing of 18 soldiers in Manipur last week. In a bold operation, special operation troops are believed to have gone across the border and neutralised a high number of militants.

A formal announcement on the same is expected at 6:00 PM. However, India will not admit to have carried out this operation in Myanmar. It has been confirmed to ET that special paratroopers, on the basis of intelligence inputs, neutralised close to a dozen militants involved in the Manipur ambush.
Last week ET had reported that the perpetrators of one of the deadliest attacks on the Army in recent decades are believed to have crossed back into Myanmar. A day after the attack in Manipur's Chandel district, a massive operational and intelligence failure had come to light that led to the ambush of the Army administrative patrol in which soldiers could not effectively retaliate, boxed in by an IED blast and multiple rounds of rocket-propelled grenades.

By most accounts, the attackers — which the Army believes is a mixed group of Meitei militants led by the KYKL faction while internal agencies point to the Khaplang faction of the NSCN as the main player — managed to cross the international border into Myanmar by Thursday afternoon last week.

Even as investigations into the motive and composition of the militant group will be carried, an embarrassing operational and intelligence failure came to light for the Army that has ordered a cou ..

So my guess is Ghataks from 6 Dogra
According to some reports, the martyred soldiers were infact Ghataks but less how things unfold further.

WTF! Army press conference didn't mention any SF OP inside of Myanmar
According to Maroof Raza, it was Para SF with regular infantry but no mention of border crossing will be provided I think. Instead they are saying that it was a joint operation and Myanmar did their part on the other side of the border.

I can't think of any motive to not disclose such details. Esp. when its all over the media.
