Baramulla/New Delhi: Barely two weeks after seven terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) were targeted by Indian Army, the assessment reports available from Indian army field units showed maximum damage was inflicted on Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT).
According to these assessment reports available from Indian army field units, LeT suffered the maximum damage in the cross-LoC surgical strikes on terror launch pads. The assessment reports of radio intercepts indicate that around 20 of its (LeT) militants were killed.
The assessment reports available from Indian army field units which included radio conversations between various Pakistani formations showed maximum damage was inflicted on LeT, a banned terror group, at Dudniyal launch pad in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, opposite to Kupwara sector of North Kashmir, according to sources in the know of details of the recent surgical strikes.
The sources said on Sunday that five teams culled out from the army division in the area were tasked to destroy launch pads of terror groups located at Kail also known as Kel and Dudniyal.
Well-calibrated operation by Indian Army
In a well-calibrated operation, which started on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, Indian army moved across the LoC and smashed four launch pads that were under the guard of a Pakistani post located 700 metres from the LoC.
Terrorists were not expecting any action
The sources said that the terrorists were not expecting any action by the Indian army and therefore were taken by surprise.
The terrorists, mainly belonging to the LeT, were seen running towards the Pakistani post when they were killed by the Indian troops, according to the assessment reports.
Seven terror launch pads across the Line of Control(LoC) were targeted by the Army on the intervening night of September 28 and 29 in a nearly five-hour-long operation during which heliborne and ground forces were deployed.
In a first, India carried out surgical strikes on seven terror launch pads across the LoC with the Army inflicting "significant casualties" on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from PoK.
