India on Thursday announced that it conducted surgical strikes on Wednesday night to neutralise terrorists waiting on the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, emphasising that it remained committed to maintaining peace and tranquillity on the border.
Stating this, Director General of Military Operations, Lt Gen Ranbir Singh, said the operation was conducted after specific and credible information about the presence of terrorists at launch pads along the LoC, who were waiting to cross over to carry out attacks in J&K and other parts of the country.
Lt Gen Singh said significant damage was inflicted on terrorists and those supporting them. Gen Singh said he spoke to his Pakistan counterpart and hoped the Pakistan Army would cooperate with the Indian Army to end terrorism.
Reminding Pakistan that it had not kept its commitment of 2004 of not allowing its soil to be used to launch terror attacks against India, he said India was facing continuing and increasing attacks, including Uri.
Indian security forces, he said, had thwarted 20 infiltration bids. New Delhi also offered consular access to Pakistan to those terrorist apprehended by India, and also to provide fingerprints/DNA samples of those terrorists killed in operations. He said equipment recovered from terrorists included GOS systems with Pakistan markings.

As per rules of engagement same was strongly and befittingly responded by Pakistani troops. The notion of surgical strike linked to alleged terrorists bases is an illusion being deliberately generated by Indian to create false effects. This quest by Indian establishment to create media hype by rebranding cross border fire as surgical strike is fabrication of truth. Pakistan has made it clear that if there is a surgical strike on Pakistani soil, same will be strongly responded."

Just before sunset every day, India's BSF and the Pakistan Rangers across the border lower flags to close the border post in a ceremony that attracts huge crowds on both sides.
