Aizawl: The People’s Defence Force (PDF), the armed wing of the National Unity Government in Myanmar have reportedly taken control of another military junta camp, this time located in Tuibual village in Myanmar. Tuibual village is located in close proximity to Vaphai village in Mizoram’s Champhai district.

As the news broke, it was revealed that 29 Myanmar military personnel, dislodged from the captured camp, are en route to seek refuge in Mizoram. These individuals are anticipated to be received by the Assam Rifles in Saikhumphai, according to Bengvarna, a local news site.

The battle for the Tuibual camp witnessed prolonged gunfire, resulting in 63 families seeking shelter in Mizoram.

This recent victory follows earlier successes by the People’s Defence Force, where military camp bases in Rihkhawdar and Khawmawi were also seized.

On Tuesday, the Indian Army and Indian Air Force (IAF)  effectively orchestrated the repatriation of 39 Myanmarese military personnel who crossed the international border and sought sanctuary in Mizoram.

These individuals were transported in separate batches on Tuesday from Hnahlan Village in Mizoram’s Champhai district to Moreh in Manipur. This route was strategically chosen to eliminate the necessity for the IAF to traverse into Myanmar airspace.
