      India's 'surgical strikes' in Kashmir: Truth or illusion?lt;br/gt; (BBC) lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Despite the use of the term "surgical strikes", the Indians definitely did not airdrop commandos to hit "launching pads of militants" inside stani-held territory, or conduct ground aults deep into the stan-administered sidelt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The BBC also could not confirm an Indian media report that Lashkar-e-Taiba camps in the Khairati Bagh village of Leepa valley and the western end of Dudhnial village in Neelum valley had been hit on 29 September.

            s will not stop their mischievious activities and Sharif retiring date gets near he will use his full force to disturb peace and infiltrate as many terrorists across. He is not interested in how many illiterate terrorists and soldiers are killed because that is what s believe in killing.

                Does it mean that BBC is the ultimate authority to confirm surgical strikes anywhere in the world? I don't think we need BBC's certification to claim surgical strikes. - Moreover, all surgical strikes need not involve commandoes slithering down the ropes tied to Apache helicopters dead in the dark nights. - BBC is a fallen star. It's credibility is dead world over. In the just concluded US elections it had become the unofficial mouthpiece of Hillary. - What can anyone expect from Bakwaas Broadcasting Corporation?
