New Delhi:  The army has carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir to prevent Pakistani terrorists who had "positioned themselves at launch pads with the  aim to carry out strikes in Jammu and Kashmir and other metros," said the army today.

Former military chiefs and experts have said India's surgical strikes were both needed and executed immaculately. "This could not continue unchallenged given what happened in Uri," G Parthasarthy, former envoy to Pakistan, adding the India's diplomatic offensive to isolate Pak "prepared the grounds" for last night's action.

Tension between India and Pakistan has escalated to its sharpest in nearly a decade since Pakistani terrorists attacked an army camp in Uri in Kashmir earlier this month. 18 soldiers were killed and Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged the attack would not go unpunished. India has moved to globally isolate Pakistan at the United Nations and other international bodies like SAARC.

The Pakistani military's press wing, however, said, "This quest by Indian establishment to create media hype by rebranding cross border fire as surgical strike is fabrication of truth. Pakistan has made it clear that if there is a surgical strike on Pakistani soil, same will be strongly responded," it added.

Pakistan has denied the strikes and accused India of cross-border firing that killed two Pakistani soldiers.

"We condemn this attack, our desire for peace should not be interpreted as our weakness," Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was quoted as saying by Pakistani media.

The government has in recent weeks indicated that its campaign against Pakistan will largely be centred around diplomatically isolating it. In line with that strategy, the Prime Minister said he will not travel in November to Pakistan to attend the regional SAARC summit. Three other countries of the eight-member SAARC have joined India's boycott.

A surgical strike is "a calculated maneuver to ensure you deliver maximum damage which gives a big surprise to your adversary," explained former air chief Fali Major, praising last night's operation for its execution.

The army said Pakistan was informed - in keeping with protocol - of the cross-border strike and that the action came after escalating violations of the 2003 ceasefire.
