India conducted "surgical strikes" across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir on terrorist hideouts in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and killed several terrorists, the Army's Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt General Ranbir Singh said today.
Singh said, the strikes were launched on Wednesday night based on "very specific and credible information that some terrorist units had positioned themselves to infiltrate" into India.
The surgical strikes were recorded on cameras with drones also recording footage. Two Indian soldiers were injured from landmines during the surgical strikes, the Army said. It also said it had no immediate plans of another such operation for now.
The operation lasted from 12.30 am to 4.30 am, with the location being 500 metres to 2 km from the LoC on the Pakistani side, India Today reported quoting unnamed sources in the Indian Army as saying.
At least two army men were killed in the 'massive' retaliation by the Indian Army to the unprovked firing by Indian troops over the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
