A team of commandos from the Army's Para Special Forces crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and destroyed at least four launchpads used by terrorists.

According to media reports, the army also said that they used the leapoard urine to distract the dogs from barking.

Army Chief Bipin Rawat while speaking to the media a few days ago had said that another surgical strike is needed against terrorists, and thinks the situation at the border with Pakistan won't improve unless the Pakistan government can control its military and its intelligence service.
