In wee hours of September 29, 2016, the Indian army carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control destroying at least seven terror launchpads in PoK. The strikes came 10 days after a brutal terror attack on an Army camp in Uri, North Kashmir along the LoC left 19 soldiers dead. The purpose was to bust the terror camps across the LoC which as per intelligence reports served as breeding grounds for terrorists to sneak across the Loc and cause militancy in the Kashmir valley. The commandos of the elite Parachute regiment carried out the special operation with clinical precision.
