A senior Indian army spokesman said the operation had inflicted significant casualties on Pakistan-based militants, it claimed were planning a series of attacks.
"The Indian Army conducted surgical strikes last night at these launch pads (along the Line of Control). During these counter-terrorist operations, significant casualties have been caused to the terrorists and those who are trying to support them," Ranbir Singh, Director General of Military Operations said.
But the military assault prompted a furious reaction from Islamabad. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the operation as India' 'naked aggression'.
While Pakistan' military denied any strikes had been carried out over the border, it confirmed two Pakistani soldiers had been killed and nine others wounded in crossfire along the Line of Control.
