30 - 35 terrorists killed, on the INDIA TV channel, Arnab is almost dancing in ecstacy and showing porki defence minister and jeering "look at this joker...." he says !

"...look ... look show his clipping again, see how pakistani defence minister is looking defeated completely, he has been pushed out by nawaz that go out.... say something, is this the man who threatened us with nukes ?..."

Major Gen. Bakshi says "Arnab, all their general live in palaces in pakistani punjab they drive mercedes cars, if they hit one TNW even on their own territory, we will hit them in pakistani punjab and for 100s of years not even a grain will grow there...."

Gaand phaad ke rakh di, my saashtan pranaams, upto now barring CNN IBN, INDIA VOICE & rNDTV ALMOST ALL THE CHANNELS ARE CELEBTRATING !!!

No way. This is far too big a task for a few special forces teams. This was a combined ground air assault mission. We put a few bombs on them and mopped up any residual contamination.

Looks like it. PTI via Times now is reporting the same.

India says it conducted surgical strikes in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, Islamabad denies

At a joint press briefing organised by the Indian defence and foreign ministries, the director general of military operations (DGMO) and the spokesperson for the Indian foreign ministry said today that the Indian army conducted a "surgical strike" last night on a "terrorist launchpad" across the line of control dividing India and Pakistan.

The DGMO, Lt General Ranbir Singh, said the strike had caused "significant" casualties, that he had called his Pakistani counterpart -- as is protocol -- to inform him of the operation, and that the operation was no longer underway.

He did not give details of how the strike had been carried out.

But sources told WION the strikes were carried out on eight different terrorist hideouts across five launchpads (used to cross over to the Indian side), that 38 terrorists were killed in under one hour, and that Indian army special forces had been paradropped onto the hideouts which were between 500 mts to 2 kms across the LoC.

ANI reported that the operation lasted from 12.30 am to 4.30 am.

Edit: Gen Bakshi on the program was mentioning that Pak Def establishment has been on high alert since the last 10 days. PA has been rehearsing all sorts of drills across LOC and would have anticipated such an attempt. In spite of the TSP preparedness, our boys have infiltrated and did they job successfully!

No casualty, meticulous planning, immaculate implementation, no leaks. WAC AD ex repeated within week, dream operation, Surgical indeed!DK Cooper added


The above is from ex-IAF. Now we know why Exercise Talon was repeated within a month's time. Singha's scenario of fully loaded Su-30MKI on high orbit with Mig-21s keeping vigil in forward bases comes true.\\

BTW - another tidbit. Someone said it was a High Altitude-High Opening (HAHO)....drop on our side, land on theirs.

Nearly 10 days after the Uri attack that claimed 18 jawans, India carried out surgical strikes in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, inflicting heavy casualties on terrorists and 'those protecting them" and indicating a change of stand on the rules of engagement on the disputed line of control.

Indian DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh announced that Pakistan had been informed about the strikes and that India has no intention of continuing the operations but is ready for any reaction from the Pak side.

The response, first of its kind across the Pakistani border during peace time, was based on specific intelligence, claim reports.

Also Read: A detailed coverage of India's response to Pakistan

Here's what happened in 4 hours, according to reports:

1. Operation begins around 12.30 am on Wednesday. According to reports, paratroopers from Special Forces were involved.

2. The commandos were airdropped at the LoC, from where they crossed over to the Pakistani side.

3. According to sources, Indian commandos entered three kilometres across the Line of Control to conduct the 'surgical strikes'

4. The strikes were carried out in Bhimber, Hotspring, Kel & Lipa sectors, on Pak's side of LoC, according to reports.

5. The location was 500 meters-2 Km across LoC, sources said

6. 7 terror launch pads were destroyed during the surgical strike

7. 38 terrorists and 2 Pakistani soldiers were killed in Indian Army surgical strikes, no Indian casualties. Those killed included terrorists, their guides and handlers

8. Helicopters were used. Mission, according to reports, ended at 4.30 am

Why did India go for this
The option of surgical strikes was taken in the wake of increase in infiltration bids , the DGMO informed. Terrorists had begun gathering in large numbers along the LoC with the objective of crossing the border and targeting locations in Jammu and Kashmir, as well as other metros. In such a scenario surgical strikes was considered the best option to deal with the threat.

Surgical strikes does not mean war
Surgical strikes are military operations undertaken by forces across the world to move on the offensive, hit enemy targets and installations, and return to primary positions, all with lightening speed and with the added precaution of suffering limited casualty.

Surgical strikes require not just detailed and exhaustive planning but need to be carried out with absolute precision to achieve the objective of taking down targets with either no or minimal collateral damage.

5. The location was 500 meters-2 Km across LoC, sources said - A large number of Paki observation posst were either bypassed, suppressed or demolished.

6. 7 terror launch pads were destroyed during the surgical strike - Paki army posts. Serious H&D damage

7. 38 terrorists and 2 Pakistani soldiers were killed in Indian Army surgical strikes, no Indian casualties. Those killed included terrorists, their guides and handlers - Should be 30 or more, not 2 if 7 launch pads were demolished




Looks like a major invasion, not just small surgical strike.

This is from NewsX

SF folks had to circumvent Pak Army positions and thus total travel distance was nearly 8Kms. Apparently no helicopters were used in the ops. However Gunships were on stand by. Entire operation was monitored using UAVs. Apparently, 2 of our boys sustained minor injuries during ops.

This is from another source, all commandos were asked to switch off their phones for the last 10+ days. No communication with family members.

Sir where are you seeing this? In case you can do a youtube search of LOC firing some older videos may be visible. They could be using those.
