This was announced by the Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh in an official press conference Thursday morning.


Earlier on Thursday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a crucial meeting of Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) along with the top brass including National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar, and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

India caused ‘significant casualties’ on terrorists and those who support them during surgical strikes across the India-Pakistan border late on Wednesday, the Indian Army said.

"India cannot allow terrorists to operate across the LoC (Line of Control) and strike with impunity," Director General Military Operations Lt Gen. Ranbir Singh told a press briefing which was called at a very short notice soon after a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security.

"I had spoken to the Pakistan DGMO and we expect the Pakistan Army to cooperate with us to eliminate the threat of terror," he said," adding, "The strikes were carried out based on specific and credible information," he said.

Pakistan has repeatedly violated the ceasefire along the LoC with the Pakistan Army on Thursday morning resorting to indiscriminate firing at the Line of Control (LoC) in north Kashmir's Kupwara district.

Pakistani troops on Wednesday targeted Indian positions with small firearms along the Line of Control in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Earlier on September 20, two days after the terror attack in Uri, Pakistani troops violated the border ceasefire in the same sector of Kashmir, targeting Indian Army positions with small firearms.

On September 6, Pakistani Army pounded Indian positions with 120 mm mortar bombs and firing along the LoC in Poonch district. On September 2, Pakistani troops had resorted to ceasefire violation by firing on forward Army posts along the LoC in Akhnoor sector in Jammu district.
