    Surgical Strike Meaning in Urdu | English to Urdu Dictionary

    DG ISPR Asim Bajwa
    Lt Gen Bajwa, Director General of the Pakistani military’s media wing told Dawn.com that the notion of the deaths being a result of a surgical strike is a false propagation by India.

    “How is it possible that the target of a ‘surgical strike’ has no idea it took place?” he said. "This was simply an episode of cross LoC fire that they [India] have been doing. Small arms and mortars were used in the fire, similar to what has been used before...we gave a befitting response."

    He added that India has been chanting the “surgical strike” mantra just for the consumption of her citizens.

    Retired Air Marshal Shahzad Chaudhry
    Retired Air Marshal Shahzad Chaudhry explained the terminology in a phone interview.

    “A surgical strike is one that comes as a surprise and is conducted with surgical efficiency. It happens when an entity does the job and comes out. It is not messy. There is no collateral damage,” said Mr Chaudhry.

    “On another level, sometimes what happens is that there is knowledge of the strike but an inability to respond.”

    Referring to the incident today, Mr Chaudhry said, “What India has done today is an LoC violation. Not a surgical strike.”

    He also dismissed India’s claim that it struck at “terrorist teams had positioned themselves on launchpads along the LoC”.

    “In a circumstance when there is so much of tension on the border between India and Pakistan, only a fool would believe that a terrorist would actually infiltrate. Both armies are on high alert, so this is absurd.”

    Security analyst Hasan Askari
    Hasan Askari explains that the term "surgical strike" is usually used to describe military action involving air strikes.

    "This was a ground offensive, not a surgical strike. The Indian military initiated cross-fire from their territory," said Mr Askari.

    "It is not possible that they entered Pakistani territory because it is all fenced. Entering Pakistani territory would require that they break that fencing. It is likely that they fired from the LoC."

    Mr Askari also maintained that Thursday's development mimicked the pattern of earlier cross-border firing. "The LoC violations that occurred in the past happened on exactly this pattern – what have they done today that is different?"
