India’s Surgical Strikes: Exclusive Details Of The Operation

Days after the Indian Army announced it had carried out surgical strikes against seven terror launch pads along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, a top official of the country’s security establishment has told The Indian Express that “if provoked again, we will amend our operational tactics”.

Sending Pakistan a tough message, the official, who was closely involved in planning the surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, said: “The surprise element in such an operation is key to its success and there will be no predictable repetition. If provoked yet again, we will amend our operational tactics. And for the time being, the continuing denial of Pakistan that there were no surgical strikes is a stance that suits us.”
