Maoist Guerillas Fire Improvised Rockets at Police in India

Jun 30, 2016

In the early hours of June 8, 2016, Maoist guerrillas fired four improvised rockets, accompanied by small arms fire during an attack on an Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) camp in the Kondagaon district of Chhattisgarh, India. Though the development and use of crude improvised rockets by Maoist guerillas was documented as early as 2004, this is the first time Maoists have used rockets in recent years. Thus, significantly, this most recent attack marks a resumption of integrating rocket fire into their attack TTPs against Indian security forces. Despite several assessments to the contrary, the rockets remain highly unsophisticated and underdeveloped. Nevertheless, given their history, Maoist rebels are likely to continue to invest in research and development in order to advance their rocket capabilities.
