Explained What is Surgical Mission Attack –
Surgical strikes are military operations undertaken by forces across the world to move on the offensive, hit enemy targets and installations, and return to primary positions, all with lightning speed and with the added precaution of suffering limited casualty.
Surgical strikes require not just detailed and exhaustive planning but need to be carried out with absolute precision to achieve the objective of taking down targets with either no or minimal collateral damage.

Of the 8 targets identified, say the sources, six were active terror camps, while two didn’t show much activity.
