Who tells lies!

Amid utter confusion over the counter insurgency operation in Myanmar, army accused the rebel outfits of spreading rumours to boost their sagging morale.

In a statement on Wednesday, army claimed to have decimated NDFB (Songbijit), ULFA (Anti-Talk) and KLO during the recent Myanmar operation.
Army observed that a section of the insurgents have been resorting to media to spread the rumour.

Army released the statement a day after NDFB(S) claimed to have killed armymen in an ambush on a boat near Manas.
According to army, the Army troops on a search mission in boats in Manas area had found a militant camp near the bank of a water body and were moving towards it.

But the sentry of the camp spotted them and fired a shot to warn other militants. The armymen opened fire but militants managed to flee taking advantage of the difficult terrain and thick forest.
A loaded pistol, 5.56 mm magazine filled with ammunition, one grenade, about 500 kg of ration and tarpaulins were found in the camp.
