The Indian Army on Wednesday night conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads at the Line of Control (LoC), the Director General Military Operations (DGMO), Lt Gen Ranbir Singh, said on Thursday in a press briefing.

"India conducted surgical strikes last night across the LoC to safeguard our nation, the Defence Ministry said on Thursday. Significant casualties have been caused to terrorists and those trying to shield them. We don't have a plan to further conduct such strikes. India has spoken to Pakistan," DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said at a press conference.

Security forces acted after intelligence inputs about terrorists preparing to launch strikes against India.

ISPR released a statement which claims it was not a surgical strike but a cross-border firing in which two Pakistani soldiers lost their lives.

On Thursday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) to review the situation along the LoC.

Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif slammed the attack adding that Pakistan's intent for peace should not be taken as its weakness.
