A new footage of Indian Army’s surgical strike across the Line-of-Control (LoC) has emerged two days before the second anniversary of the Indian Army’s surgical strikes.

The video of the surgical strikes is authentic, an Information and Broadcasting Ministry official told PTI.

According to the news agency, the clip which was made using overhead footage from unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs and thermal imaging, shows a terror launch pad being destroyed.

On 29 September, 2016, the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on seven terrorist launch pads across the LoC as a response to an attack on its base in Uri earlier that month.

This is the second footage of the operation to have emerged so far. The first video had come out in June, 2018.

To commemorate 29 September as the ‘Surgical Strike Day’ the Union Government has asked lyricist Prasoon Joshi to write an anthem. A circular has also been released calling for students to “pledge their support” for the armed forces.
