We have been hearing the issue of surgical strikes from last one week, first let’s define what surgical strike is, surgical strikes can be conducted through airborne or artillery based precision guided strikes or ground force based assaults; both of which require sophisticated intelligence collection, platforms to conduct collections, and surveillance of target sites and objectives.
India claimed they had conducted a “surgical strike” in across the Line of Control (LoC). Pakistan denied that India carried out a surgical strike and claimed that two of its soldiers were killed in cross border fire.
“The notion of surgical strike linked to alleged terrorists’ bases is an illusion being deliberately generated by India to create false effects,” the Pakistani military said in a statement.
India’s director general of military operations, Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh, publicly announced the strike by stating, “Based on receiving specific and credible inputs that some terrorist teams had positioned themselves at launch pads along the Line of Control to carry out 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.”
India has provided few details of the operation but sources indicate that the “surgical strikes” consisted of a heliborne unit and Special Forces that infiltrated the Line of Control and conducted assaults on seven suspected terrorist launch pads that were two to three km beyond the Line of Control.
Pakistan has a record of fighting a large scale war against terror, our Army Chief has made it clear several times that we are ready to tackle any type of attack from the enemies. No matter its external threat to our state or internal threat, we are ready to defend each and every inch of our motherland therefore the fake drama of India has been exposed in front of the world, there were no surgical strikes carried out by Indians on our motherland and if India dares to do so they will be responded with full force. 2 days ago top military brass of Pakistan Army visited the Kashmir sector of Mangla where our central command is located, on the visit COAS took notice of the defence of our country and showed complete satisfaction on the abilities of Pakistan Army to respond any type of Indian aggression.
