# It is a matter of concern that infiltration on LoC are increasing. This has reflected in the terror attacks in Poonch and Uri on 11th and 18th September. At least 20 infiltration attempts foiled by Army.
# Global positioning systems with Pakistani marking.
# Captured terrorists have confirmed of hailing from Pakistan.
# Matter has been taken at high level regular time. We had also proposed that the fingerprint of the terrorists would also be made available to them. Despite our persistent urging to Pakistan to not allow territory under its control to not be used for terrorist activities nothing was done.
# Indian Army conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads on the LoC, significant casualties have been caused. I spoke to the Pakistan DGMO, shared our concerns and told him that we conducted surgical strikes last night.
# The motive of this operation was to hit out at the terrorists who were planning to infiltrate into our territory
