India’s army raid on camps of Indian insurgents in neighboring Myanmar has changed the country’s counter-insurgency strategy, Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar said Thursday.

A simple action against insurgents has changed the mindset of full security scenario in the country… So much so that those who fear India’s new posture have started reacting,” Parrikar told journalists.

On Wednesday, Indian media cited Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, a minister of state in India’s Information Ministry, as saying that the raid was ordered by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to send a message to neighboring countries that “harbor terrorists.”

Northeastern India is home to dozens of separatist groups. Indian troops have been deployed in the area for security but have never before conducted operations across the border.
