Govt releases new video of 2016 surgical strikes

NEW DELHI: The Government on Thursday released a fresh video clip of the 2016 surgical strike on terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, two days ahead of the military action’s second anniversary.

The video of the surgical strikes is authentic, an Information and Broadcasting Ministry official said.

The clip, which was made using overhead footage from unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs and thermal imaging, shows a terror launch pad being destroyed.

In June this year, several TV channels showed purported video clips of the surgical strikes.

The fresh video comes amid the Government’s plans to celebrate the second anniversary of the strikes in a big way.

On September 29, 2016, the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on seven terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) as a response to an attack on its base in Uri earlier that month. (AGENCIES)
