What is surgical strike?
Lahore: The ties between Pakistan and India have worsened after the Uri attack claiming lives of almost 20 Indian soldiers and, secondly, after India claimed that it had made a ‘surgical strike’ in which two Pakistan soldiers were martyred at the Line of Control (LOC) in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).
Many people became confused by the phrase of ‘surgical strike’ as it’s a military term and they had heard it for the first time in their life.
Question rises that is it possible to carry a surgical strike on the Line of Control (the border line between Pakistan and India)?
The Baaghi.TV obligating its duty brings the real meaning of the word surgical strike to its viewers.
A surgical strike is a type of attack inside the territory of enemy targeting only the damage of military possessions; it does not include the collateral damage.
In the surgical strike, an entity enters some unauthorized place, does its job and leaves the place.
These types of exercises are tough in the military sides that require not only military expertise but also technical assistance.
According to former Air Marshal Shehzad Chaudhary, “In the surgical strike, someone invades, attacks the target and then runs away”.
He defined another type of surgical strike and went on to say that in this type, an attack is carries out, and you know the initiatives of the attack but you don’t have the ability to undo the target.
Defense Analyst Hasan Askari stated that the place or the area where a country uses its air force, that exercise of air force is called ‘surgical strike’. In the exercise of the air force, the pilot presents its complete report over the operations and tells whether the target was hit or remained unharmed. Moreover, he informed that the complete video of the operation is also sent to the higher authorities.
