India conducts surgical strikes in Pakistan

The Indian Army, in response to Pakistan’s attacks, conducted surgical strikes on known terror launch pads. The surgical strikes have been confirmed by Army Director General of Military Operations Lt. General Ranbir Singh along with the spokesman of the Ministry of External Affairs Vikas Swarup. The strikes resulted in several casualties on the other side of border. The tension between India and Pakistan is very high now. Read on to know more details about the strike.

A surgical strike is when the military targets a very specific area and attacks with very minimal or no collateral damage. The strikes took place at terror launch pads along the Line of Control. Based on the credible information the Indian Army had, the strikes were performed.

Seven terror pads were destroyed in the strikes which happened between 12.30 am and 4.30 am. The army personnel were air-dropped across the LoC.

Army DGMO Ranbir Singh said that the strikes resulted in a significant damage to terror launch pads. The attack areas were confirmed to be belonging to multiple Pakistani terror groups. Khwaja Asif, Pakistani Defense Minister Khwaja confirmed that two Pakistani soldiers were killed and nine were injured. There have been no casualties on the Indian side. Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the attack and warned that their “silence should not be mistaken as weakness.”

Pakistan further denied that there have been no such strikes. They claim that the casualties happened due to cross border fire initiated by India.

The government of India is already preparing for a response from the Pakistan side. Evacuations already started in villages in Punjab which are 10 KM from International Border with Pakistan. Extra BSF troops were already deployed in necessary areas.

Due to the possibility of hostility, the beating retreat ceremony which was supposed to happen at the Wagah border was cancelled.
