India carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control near Kashmir last night as informed by defence officials in a hurriedly called media briefing. "India conducted surgical strikes last night across the LoC to safeguard our nation, the Defence Ministry said on Thursday. Significant casualties have been caused to terrorists and those trying to shield them. We don't have a plan to further conduct such strikes. India has spoken to Pakistan," DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said in the conference jointly called by the Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Defence. While no Indian casualties occurred, Pak lost two jawans. "There were launch pads at the LoC where terrorists were present waiting to infiltrate the nation and attack areas in Kashmir and metros across the country. We have recovered items including GPS which have Pakistani markings. Captured terrorists hailing from PoK or Pakistan have confessed to their training in Pakistan or in Pakistan controlled region," Singh said.
