Operation Sunrise was carried out between India and Myanmar to target militant group

Operation Sunrise 2 is a coordinated military operation which was carried out between India and Myanmar to target militant groups. The Indian army and Myanmar Army carried out a three-week-long coordinated operation in their respective border areas from May 16. The operation targeted several militant groups operating in Manipur, Nagaland, and Assam.

1st Phase:
The first phase of “Operation Sunrise” was conducted in March along the Indo-Myanmar border. In the operation, a number of camps of north-east-based militant groups were busted.

2nd Phase:
During “Operation Sunrise 2″, the armies coordinated with each other to bust camps of militant outfits, including the Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (KLO), NSCN (Khaplang), the United Liberation Front of Assam (I) and the National Democratic Front of Boroland (NDFB). Nearly six dozen militants belonging to these groups were nabbed and several of their camps destroyed during the operation. India has been pushing for deeper coordination between the armies of the two countries while guarding the border.
