On September 29, India carried out ‘surgical strikes’ on terror launch pads across the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, inflicting “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who are trying to support them. The announcement by the DGMO came soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that attackers on an Indian army camp in Uri in Kashmir will not go “unpunished” and that the sacrifice of 19 jawans will not go in vain. Reports suggest that nearly 40-50 terrorists were killed in the operation.

Bajwa added that Pakistani troops had mounted a befitting response to Indian firing along the LoC.
A day later, Asim Bajwa said there had only been cross border fire initiated and conducted by the former.
Meanwhile, defence minister Manohar Parrikar compared Pakistan’s condition to an “anesthetized patient” after a surgery.
“Indian troops were like Hanuman who did not quite know their prowess before the surgical strikes,” Parrikar said.
India loves peace and does not believe in unprovoked aggression but it won’t take terror lying down, he said, adding that the strikes were also meant to give a message to Pakistan that Indian troops knew how to retaliate.
