Myanmar army (or Tatmadaw) Thursday launched a flush-out operation against NSCN (K) near Hoyat village and Laonyu village along India-Myanmar border.

Myanmar army had accused NSCN (K) of breaching the 2012 ceasefire agreement by sheltering leaders and cadres of other rebel outfits of North East India.

According to intelligence sources, the area where the operation was carried out is dominated by the NSCN (K), also known as Konyak region inside Myanmar.

The operation was carried out since morning. “Several rounds were fired during the operation. However, due to connectivity issue, no details could be ascertained,” sources added. Sources further said that the Myanmar army may have reportedly targeted the Konyak region command of the Aug Yung-led NSCN (K) based on reports of the group sheltering other North East insurgents like ULFA (I), KLO, NDFB etc. 

Myanmar army carried out similar operations against North East insurgents, particularly NSCN (K) since January this year.

The Myanmar army had taken control over NSCN (K) headquarters on January 29, 2019.

The army also took over three outposts and dismantled two training camps set by Manipur and Assam insurgent outfits. The Myanmarese army has told these outfits in unequivocal terms that they have to leave Myanmar immediately and if they remain, they will be considered hostiles.
