Will repeat surgical strikes: Army

New Delhi: During a briefing to the defence standing committee on Friday, the army confirmed the political parties that the surgical strikes could be repeated. 
This was the first time that the MPs were briefed by Army about the events of surgical strikes that took place on the intervening night of 28 and 29 September. 
Since the surgical strikes created a political row over 'evidence', it was necessary that the events were formally confirmed to the committee.
In the briefing that lasted for 15 minutes, Lt Gen Rawat explained that though the Pakistani DGMO has been informed by the Indian DGMO that the surgical strikes were a "one off" action and in future if Pakistan does not fulfil its promises, surgical strikes will take place once again. 
He went ahead to give the MPs detailed information about the entire operation that included damages inflicted on the terror camps as well as possible number of terrorists who had gathered across the LoC.
The committee members were also informed that action against terror outfits were explored since Pathankot Attack and the Uri attack which triggered the Indian Army to operationalise their plan.
