A PROUD MOMENT FOR INDIA'S GROWING MIC . Myanmar operation: 70 commandos finish task in 40 minutes
The actual operation (hitting the camp and destroying it) took about 40 minutes. Not only did the commandos kill those present at the camps in gun fight, during which rocket launchers were also used, one of the camp was also set afire.
Sources, quoting ground reports, said 38 militants were killed and seven others were injured in the strike.
Thermal imagery was also used to track the operation about which Myanmarese authorities were kept in the loop, they said.Mi—17
helicopters of the Indian Air Force were put on standby, ready to be pressed into service to evacuate the commandos in case anything went wrong
The meeting explored the options of air strike using Sukhoi and MiG-29
fighters as well as ground strike by special forces of the army.
However, this option was ruled out since the possibility of colatoral damage was high in an air strike .
