India brands cross border fire as surgical strikes: Pakistan

Srinagar: Pakistan on Thursday dismissed the Indian claims of any surgical strikes across  the LoC.

“The notion of surgical strike linked to alleged terrorists bases is an illusion being deliberately generated by India to create false effects,” reports quoting Pakistan military statement said.

“This quest by Indian establishment to create media hype by rebranding cross border fire as surgical strike is fabrication of truth. Pakistan has made it clear that if there is a surgical strike on Pakistani soil, same will be strongly responded.”

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif strongly condemned the incident, according to Radio Pakistan. “Our intent for a peaceful neighbourhood should not be mistaken as our weakness,” the Pak PM said.
