Indian Army is fully prepared to thwart Pakistan’s misadventures, says Lt Gen Ranbir Singh

Rubbishing Pakistan’s threat of conducting 10 surgical strikes on India, GOC Northern Command Lt Gen Ranbir Singh on Wednesday reassured the nation that Indian Army is fully prepared to take up any challenging task posed by the enemy. He also stated that statements emerging from different quarters of Pakistan are of no consequence and should not be dwelled upon.

Earlier this month, Major General Asif Ghafoor, spokesperson of the Pakistan military’s Inter-Services Public Relations, while on his visit to London, threatened India with “10 surgical strikes’ in response to one such attack by India. He was quoted saying to Radio Pakistan, “If India dares to launch a surgical strike inside Pakistan, it will face 10 surgical strikes in response.”

Addressing the press, Lt Gen Ranbir Singh also claimed that the measures undertaken by the Armed Forces to impede infiltration attempts along the border have proven very effective and successful. According to him, there has been no mitigation in terror training activities in the camps across the border and they are vigilant of the terrorists’ attempts to infiltrate in India.

Pakistan had been vehemently denying the occurrence of surgical strikes on its soil by Indian armed forces in 2016, in which approximately 40 Terrorists were killed when Indian Army personnel ambushed 4 terror launchpads and subsequently destroyed them. Indian Armed forces have already put out videos corroborating their claim of conducting a successful Surgical Strike deep inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Amidst this, such knee-jerk reaction exhibited by a senior Pakistani officer only serves to authenticate that the Indian Army indeed carried out the surgical strikes.
