Last week, Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on seven terror launch pads across the LoC in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, inflicting heavy casualties on terrorists waiting to sneak into India.

The surgical strikes came days after Pakistani terrorists stormed an Army camp in Kashmirs Uri, killing 19 soldiers.

Pakistan has denied that the surgical strikes took place on Thursday and have called it “cross-border” firing.
