This surgical strike was retaliation by India on September 29, 2016, for a militant attack on the India Army at Uri. The attack at Uri took place on September 18, 2016. Though rejected by Pakistani Army, India actually conducted strikes against militant launch pads across the LOC (an area controlled by Pakistan).
