Bollywood celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Anupam Kher have hailed the Indian Army, who recently conducted surgical strikes on terror camps along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.
As many as 19 Indian soldiers were killed in the September 18 Uri attack. On Wednesday night, Indian Special Forces targeted “some terrorist teams” positioned at launch pads across the LoC, leading to “significant casualties” to the terrorists and those who support them, the military said.
