Aziz’s statement comes following the announcement made by Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh of India carrying out ‘surgical strikes’ on September 29 on terror launch pads across the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, inflicting “significant casualties” on terrorists. Reportedly, the strikes have killed 35-40 terrorists which many called revenge of the Uri attacks.
Though Pakistan has denied the claim of surgical strike, the incident has escalated the tension between the two countries with speculation of full-blown war on rife.
