An earlier tweet dismissed reports of casualties to the Indian Army personnel. It also said that firefighting occurred along the India-Myanmar border at 4.45am today.

The surgical strike has taken place exactly a year after India carried out a surgical strike against terror camps along the India-Pakistan border.
