The recent Uri attack in India which caused the demise of 18 militants was a situation of deep grief and a time to act to retaliate.

India confirmed on Thursday morning that Indian armed forces carried out surgical strikes along the line of control. This act was a true description to the statement of PM Narendra Modi that, we won’t sit idle and we would take measures to counterbalance the threat.

The cross-border surgical strike was conducted to give a clear picture in a most diplomatic way that Pakistan do try to operate terrorism from its soil against India. Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh and Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup made the declarations at a joint press session on Thursday afternoon, that the operation was not disclosed because of some operational reasons, but this strike has been long awaited. On the media session, DGMO also revealed that India has neutralized at least 20 intrusion tenders from Pakistan during this year. He also said that there are many strikes planned against India and this act was just the beginning to neutralize them.

As per media reports, 38 terrorists and Pakistani soldiers were killed by the Indian Army. Mentioning sources, it reported that para commandos were flown 2-3 km into PoK in Mi-17 choppers and they destroyed six terror camps.

Meanwhile, media outlets across the border have been reporting the Pakistan’s say on the act. Disparaging entitlements that India supported out forays across the edge, they took the line that two of its soldiers were slayed in firing from the Indian side. It also claimed to have given a befitting reply to the ceasefire violation.

Well, no one will tolerate terrorism and any act that can help to eradicate will always be supported.
