India conducts surgical strikes across LOC, decimates terror launch pads
New Delhi: Indian Army conducted surgical strikes across LOC, in one of the most daring initiatives in years. Coming following the Uri terrorist attack in Kashmir Valley, the whole nation was demanding tough action against Pakistan, especially the elaborate terror network in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) and elsewhere.
Director General of Military Operation (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh in a press conference in Delhi spelled out details about the across the border surgical raids by the Indian Army.
He said, “Based on receiving specific and credible inputs that some terrorist teams had positioned themselves at launch pads along Line of Control to carryout infiltration and conduct terrorist strikes inside Jammu and Kashmir and in various metros in other states, the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes at several of these launch pads to pre-empt infiltration by terrorists. The operations were focussed on ensuring that these terrorists do not succeed in their design to cause destruction and endanger the lives of our citizens”.
“During these counter terrorist operations significant casualties were caused to terrorists and those providing support to them. The operations aimed at neutralizing terrorists have since ceased. We do not have any plans for further continuation. However, the Indian Armed Forces are fully prepared for any contingency that may arise” he went on to add.
