Dras (Jammu and Kashmir), July 26 (ANI): Northern Army Commander, Lieutenant General D.S. Hooda on Sunday, said that it is difficult to read the intentions of the Pakistan Army
“Somehow events on the border seem to coincide with events happening at political diplomatic level… It is difficult for us to get into anybody’s mind and exactly read the intent or intentions as to what the Pakistan Army is thinking,” said Lieutenant General Hooda
The Northern Army Commander earlier paid tribute to the Kargil war martyrs at Dras War Memorial.
He also laid a wreath at the war memorial and remembered the war heroes.
The Kargil War was an armed conflict between India and Pakistan that took place between May and July 1999 in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kargil District and elsewhere along the Line of Control (LOC).
The conflict, which claimed the lives of more than 500 officers and soldiers, many of whom were posthumously given gallantry awards, is also referred to as Operation Vijay, which was the name of the Indian operation that cleared the Kargil sector.
The town of Kargil is located 205 km from Srinagar, and faces Pakistan’s so-called Northern Areas across the Line of Control. (ANI)
