Nearly 20 terrorists have been Shot dead in a daring cross-LoC operation by the Indian Army in response to the Uri attack.
Two units of the elite 2 Paras comprising 18-20 soldiers flew across the LoC in the Uri sector in military helicopters and carried out an operation that killed at least 20 suspected terrorists across three terror camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
As reported by The Quint the operation happened during the intervening hours of 20 September and 21 September.
Indications that the Indian Special Forces struck across LoC came in the form of Pakistan declaring a no-fly zone over PoK on 20 September night.
Pakistan’s national flag carrier Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) had cancelled flights to northern Pakistani cities, including to Gilgit and Skardu in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, due to “air space restrictions”.PIA called off flights to Gilgit and Skardu in Gilgit-Baltistan region in Pakistan- occupied-Kashmir (PoK) and Chitral in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province,as confirmed by PIA spokesperson Danyal Gilani on tweeter.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said PM Modi’s statement that ‘those behind Uri attack will not go unpunished’, will not remain a statement. We are serious about it. Sometimes “knee-jerk” reaction is needed.
