India carried out ‘surgical strikes’ on terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday night, inflicting “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who are trying to support them.

The announcement of the sudden action by the Army was made today by the DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh, 11 days after the terror strike by Pakistan-based terror outfit JeM on an Indian Army camp in Uri in Kashmir, over which Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the attackers will not go “unpunished” and that the sacrifice of 18 jawans will not go in vain.

Pakistan on Thursday sought to play down the incident, denying that any such strikes had taken place.

Some Pakistani journalists also reiterated Pakistani army and politicians’ denial of the surgical strikes.

#NoSurgicalStrike was trending in Pakistan.
