Guwahati, February 3, 2019
The Myanmar Army (or Tatmadaw) launched an attack on an abandoned camp of the banned militant outfit United Liberation Front of Assam, Independent (ULFA-I) in Northern Myanmar at Taga.
No casualties have been reported so far. The ULFA-I may seek Chinese diplomatic assistance to diffuse the tension in Myanmar, as per reports. The ULFA-I camp was located near the headquarters of the banned militant outfit National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K).
It may be mentioned that the Myanmar Army has taken control of the NSCN-K camp in the Naga Self-Administered Zone of Sagaing Region without a shot being fired.
A military column consisting of over 400 troops from six battalions led by the Hkamti District tactical commander under the Tatmadaw’s North-West Command took control of the NSCN-K’s headquarters in the village of Ta Ga in Nanyun Township on January 29th, 2019.
