India’s surgical strikes along the de facto border with Pakistan in Kashmir can be repeated if the “situation warrants”, new Army chief General Bipin Rawat has said.

“We will do it again if needed,” said Rawat at a press conference in Delhi.

Indian soldiers carried out a series of lightning strikes in September 2016 along the Line of Control border after a militant attack at the Army’s Uri base in Kashmir. the strikes aimed at “neutralising the terrorists” had caused “multiple casualties”, according to Indian officials.
