Surgical Strikes: Eyewitnesses’ Accounts Validate India’s Claim Of A Lethal Strike

Eyewitnesses living across the Line of Control (LoC) have provided The Indian Express with graphic accounts of last week’s Indian Army special forces strikes on jihadists’ staging posts, describing how bodies of those killed in clashes before dawn on September 29 were loaded onto trucks for secret burials. The eyewitnesses also described brief but intense fire engagements that destroyed makeshift buildings that housed jihadists before they left for the last stage of their journeys across the LoC.

Their accounts corroborate India’s claims that it carried out strikes against terror launch pads — a claim Pakistan has denied, saying, instead, that its military’s forward positions were targeted with small-arms and mortar fire.

            Why can't the numbers be higher than stated? Is that not equally possible to them being lower?

                for those s who demand evidence for surgical strike.Think political aspect of it if india provides evidence then pak government will be left with a option to retaliate in order to show that their army is not dummy. In that process escalating the tension among two country. When indian army is capable of striking without affecting civilians of POK we must praise our army instead demanding evidence and why should escalate the situation to full fledged war across international borders when surgical strike can be used to fumigate the terrorists' and give a warning

                  As far i know surgical strike in true sense , was first time time done against stan. Perhaps satellite supports and others tecnical capability was not available. In previous gov., our policy was of restrain . There was any courage in political leadership. They even can not think about it.lt;br/gt; It was a courageous and challanging decision to cross the loc and operate there under Mody,s leadership. Power starved politician are not digesting the fact. They are thinking about a victory wave may generate in favour of BJP in coming elections. In fear of defeat, they are reacting negatively and questioning the character of our army . But these corrupt politician are doing more damage for their parties because people of india have more knowedge and facts now not in a mood to tolerate these type of cuning politicians.

                    The power thirsty persons have gone mad beyond imagination. First Kejriwal and now Rahul have gone out of control of they themselves. It meant, they are mad.
