Shortly after Lt General Ranbir Singh addressed the country about the recent surgical strikes conducted by India across the Line-of Control (LoC) in Pakistan, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) has denied Indian claims, saying there were no surgical strikes.
ISPR, the Pakistan Army’s media wing has said, “There has been no surgical strike by India, instead there had been cross border fire initiated by India.”
“The notion of surgical strike linked to alleged terrorist bases is an illusion deliberately generated by India to create false effects,” the ISPR added.
Pakistan asserted that had there been any surgical strikes, it would have retaliated strongly.
