Pulwama Attack: Precision Air Strike for Revenge
Serious discussions are going on to plan the revenge for Pulwama attack. The military pressure has been increased by the armed forces and at the same time Pakistan raised its security levels.
Everyone opine that government needs to consider options for limited cross- border strikes to make Islamabad change its behavior.
Military options without going to war are on discussions but they have to be escalated. The military options could range from shallow ground strikes, limited air strikes to stand-off strikes and covert operations.
precision air strikes against 'non-state targets' in PoK are said to be effective options to teach Pakistan a lesson as ground-based surgical strikes is no surprise to Pak as it was done earlier in 2016.
“There are many military options depending on time, place, and situation without crossing the threshold. The aim is to target the terror infrastructure in Pakistan, But not to effect general citizens of it,” officer said.
Diplomacy with Pakistan is not working, as China is backing it. One surgical strike in three years is not going to change Pakistan’s attitude. India needs a consistent and long-term strategy, he added.
