URI-THE SURGICAL STRIKE 2016

 URI-THE SURGICAL STRIKE 2016:

It was 29 September, 2016, when Indian army conducted the Surgical strikes against the launch pads of the military men along the Line of Control in the part of  Kashmir where not a single casualty was caused to the Indian Army men.

It was claimed by the Pakistanis that the Indian Army did not crossed the Line of Control, they fought only on the border, where 2 of their soldiers died and 9 were wounded. The report provided by India about other casualties was rejected by Pakistan. It also said that India is hiding it's casualties, all this was done by Pakistan to maintain its fame.

Reason behind the Surgical Strike:

On 18 September, 2016, 4 militants of Pakistan entered URI, a part of Jammu and Kashmir, 


and killed 19 soldiers of the Indian Army. The Surgical strike which was claimed by India, was the clear revenge of the skirmish which Pakistan created on its own, after disputing the government policies. In the upcoming months also, India and Pakistan kept on exchanging fires, in where various casualties were caused on both the side.

Jaish-E-Mohammad, who was a Pakistani terrorist, was accused behind all the attacks. 

Before the URI attack, Gurdaspur and Pathankot, were also attacked by terrorist which earlier caused the great revenge fire in Indians, but the Uri attack act as the burning lit for Pakistan.

On 21 September, 2016, India gathered the Pakistan High Commission, Abdul Bassit, and gave a letter which had all the details, which clearly shows the involvement of Pakistan in the Uri attack. The Defense Minister of Pakistan told that India is doing all this so that they can attain attention from the protests that were popular in Jammu and Kashmir.

Attack:

An Indian source, said that Indian soldiers started firing on the border to cover the 3/4 teams from the 4th and the 9th battalions, who were of the Para Special forces, to cross over the LOC at different points after 29 September, 2016.

The 4 para team crossed the Nowgam sector.

The 9 para team crossed the LoC in Poonch district.

By 2 a.m. IST, the army sources stated that the firing was started on the base camps of the Pakistani terrorists, using grenades and 84mm rocket launchers.

The alleged footages of the strike was released by Indian government in the year of 2018.

Aftermath:

It was claimed by the Indian Sources, after the raid immediately, that all the evidences of the strikes were erased to maintain the version of skirmish by the Pakistan along the line of Control.

Pakistan completely refused to any casualties after hiding all the dead bodies and questioning, "Where did all the dead bodies go?". 

An independent inquiry was also made to know the details, as according to India various launch pads of Lakshar-e-Taiba, Hizbul Mujahideen, and Jiash-e-Mohammad were destroyed.
