Abu Dhabi: Pakistan is so much afraid of India’s surgical strike that it is crying in front of the world.
Pakistan is once again having nightmares of a ‘surgical strike’ by the Indian Army on terrorist launch pads. Speaking during a press conference in Abu Dhabi (UAE), Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that he had ‘reliable’ information that India was planning another surgical strike.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi was on a two-day visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He claimed that India was trying to take approval from its ‘partners’ to move ahead with military action.
“According to our army and the information we have received, India is planning a surgical strike against Pakistan,” Dawn.com quoted Qureshi as saying. “India is already trying to get approval on this matter with its other partner countries,” he said.
The Dawn quoted sources as saying that the Pakistani Army has been placed on high alert by the Indian forces amid a possible threat of a strike.
India carried out a surgical strike on September 29, 2016 across the Line of Control (LoC) in response to a terrorist attack on an army base in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir. Nineteen Indian soldiers were martyred in the Pakistan-backed terror attacks in Uri.
On February 26, 2019, the Indian Air Force (IAF) carried out an airstrike on terrorist targets inside Pakistan. The action was taken in response to the February 14 suicide attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist group in which 40 CRPF personnel were martyred in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir.
