IndiaMyanmar Junta dropped 2 bombs in Farkwan Village of Mizoram

The Myanmar military Junta dropped two bombs in the Farkwan Village of Mizoram causing panic in the Mizoram village.

A senior official of the Assam Rifles (AR), which guards the India-Myanmar border, also established that several explosions occurred in the neighbouring country along the international boundary.

The Myanmar military reportedly bombed a rebel camp along the country’s border with India last Tuesday, causing panic in several villages in the Indian state of Myanmar.  Two days after the Myanmar military reportedly bombed a rebel camp along the country’s border with India, some local leaders declared that one shell fell in Mizoram’s Champai district, the Assam Rifles (AR) on Thursday rebuffed the assertion stating that the Indian side was unaffected by the aerial strikes.

Lalramliana, the president of Farkawn village council in Champai, however, said that a bomb was dropped near the Tiau river on the Mizoram side.

Abiema Lisham from Mizoram shared pictures and tweeted., “Myanmar military junta air-bombed a rebel camp near #Mizoram border.  A bomb dropped by a Myanmar MiG-29 jet accidentally landed a few metres inside Indian side (Mizoram)  A clinic, where the local villagers also get treatment, near the camp also suffered damages.

The Indian Media and Prime Minister Modi are criticized for their silence.  Bole Bharat tweeted, “Yesterday Myanmar Junta dropped two bombs in Farkwan village of Mizoram.As usual Indian Media and PM Modi, both are silent.”

Taking to PTI, a senior official of the Assam Rifles (AR), which guards the India-Myanmar border, also confirmed that several explosions occurred in the neighbouring country along the international boundary.

A senior official of Champai district said that an official statement would be issued in the matter only after thorough verification of the details.

“I have sent a magistrate of the area concerned to verify the claims being made by some locals. An official report on the matter can be expected by Thursday evening,” Champhai deputy commissioner James Lalrinchhana said.

A truck owned by a village council member has been damaged in the explosion, he said.

The Myanmar military junta, on Tuesday, reportedly launched aerial strikes on Camp Victoria, the military headquarters of the Chin National Army (CNA), one of the most powerful ethnic insurgent groups in the neighbouring country.

A CNA leader in Mizoram told PTI on the condition of anonymity that five people, including two women, were killed and 15 others injured in the attack.

The ChamphaI DC said that initial reports received by the administration suggest that eight explosions have occurred in the neighbouring country.

“We have not received any report of casualties as it is not a matter of our concern. It is an internal issue of a foreign country,” he added.

Mizoram, which shares a 510-km-long border with Myanmar, is now hosting thousands of people who fled the neighboring country after the military junta seized power in February 2021.
