Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], Sept. 30 (ANI): Former External Affairs Minister and former Karnataka Chief Minister S.M. Krishna on Friday said the surgical strike at the Line of Control (LoC) which took place late night on Wednesday was a message to Islamabad that India's patience has been tested and exhausted and that New Delhi won't tolerate such skirmishes.

"Well, this is certainly a message, a message which cannot be doubted that India's patience has exhausted, it can no longer tolerate these skirmishes, and I am sure Pakistan understands this language only," Krishna told ANI.

He praised the surgical operation carried out by the Indian Army, saying the entire nation stands behind the government as one man to protect its sovereignty and integrity.

Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh earlier said the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes on seven terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC), which was ready to carry out terrorists strikes in Jammu and Kashmir and various other metros in our country around midnight.

Lt. Gen. Singh that the operation of the Indian Army was basically focussed to ensure that the terrorists do not succeed in their design of infiltration and carry out destruction endangering the lives of citizens of the nation.

Lt. Gen. Singh further said that he spoke with the Pakistani DGMO and expressed New Delhi's concern and meanwhile, shared information over the operation conducted by the Indian Army.

Elucidating the involvement of Pakistan in the recent infiltration bids and terrorist strikes the DGMO said the captured terrorists have confessed that they were trained by the Asian neighbour. (ANI)
