Myanmar military carries out air-strikes inside Indian territory, says report

The Myanmar military carried out an air-strike on a prominent training facility for pro-democracy fighters near the Indian border, landing at least two bombs within Indian territory, news website The Guardian has reported.

As per a report by journalist Aakash Hassan and Hannah Ellis-Petersen, a rebel commander said that the Myanmar government, which took control in a coup in February 2021 and is currently involved in a violent conflict to put down pro-democracy rebels, started attacking Camp Victoria on Tuesday afternoon.

Camp Victoria is the headquarters of the Chin National Army (CNA), an ethnic armed group that is engaged in combat with other rebel organisations to reestablish democracy in Myanmar (PDF). Just a few kilometres separate the training camp from the Indian border in Mizoram.
