Several news channels were running the video clips of Army’s surgical strike against Pakistan, which showed how terrorists were killed and their launch pads and bankers were destroyed.
Channels, running the videos of the surgical strike against Pakistan, claimed that they were provided to them by official sources and were taken from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Thermal Imaging (TI) cameras.
“The videos are real. I can confirm that,” the Indian Express quoted Lt General DS Hooda (retd), who was in-charge of the surgical strikes, as saying.
“When the surgical strikes happened, my view was that the videos should have been released as proof. It is good that they have come out now,” Hooda further added.
The Indian Army had carried out surgical strikes against terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir on the intervening night of September 28-29, 2016. The news was announced by the then DGMO, Lt General Ranbir Singh on September 29. Singh had claimed that Army’s 4 and 9 Special Forces battalions had conducted the strikes across the border along with the LoC.
