A surgical strike is a precision military attack carried out by going into another country with the intention to damage a specific target. Surgical strikes are meant to avoid collateral damage to surrounding civilizations or the general public.

Here Are The Main four Reasons Why This Surgical Strike is Different Than previous Surgical Strike 

Surgical Strike 2 Analysis – Mirage 2000 Plane Features,Specifications pdf

  1. This is First Time when India Strike Deep Inside Pakistan territory . Earlier India strike Only near LOC Based terror camps .
  2. Secondly, this is the first time Indian Air Force (IAF) has crossed the LoC to hit terror training camps in Pakistan. The last time such an attack took place was during the 1971 Indo-Pak war. Even during the 1999 Kargil war, IAF jets pounded terror locations but took care not to cross the LoC under any circumstances. Pakistan Army too has acknowledged the airspace violation in Muzafarabad sector.
  3. Third Reason –  this is a huge embarrassment for Pakistan’s Army that Indian forces crossed their airspace and left after eliminating terror training camps.Just last Friday,Pakistan Army’s spokesperson Maj Gen Ghafoor had said, “Pakistan armed forces will never be surprised by you. But let me assure you, we shall surprise you”. Despite all their claims, they will still have to answer how IAF planes crossed, struck targets and went back without being challenged by Pakistan.
  4. Fourth Reason – This is the First Time When India Attack Deep inside Pakistan territory. Earlier India Was fighting Near LOC And Always Try To Put Pressure On pakistan With The help of Other Countries . But Now This is New India And pakistan need To understand that Now India Can Fight And can Attack Even In Pakistan Territory .

Why Indian Air Force Attacked Or Targeted Balakot Only ?

Surgical Strike 2 Analysis – Mirage 2000 Plane Features,Specifications pdf

  1. Balakot is the Biggest Base Camp of Jaish A Mohamad
  2. Balakot Base Camp is Run By Masood Azhar Relative
  3. India has Full Evidence of Suicide Attack Was Planned From Balakot.
  4. Near Balakot Terror Camp There Was No Common Public.
  5. Balakot Base Camp Was Also Used By Hizbull Mujahideen
  6. It is Situated On Kunhar River – Useful for Aquatic Training Also
  7. Camp Was Situated 20 Kms Away From Balakot Town And trainer Were Former Pakistani Officers.

Here We Are Talking About Kunhar River And its Location 

  • The Kunhar River is 166 kilometres (103 mi) long river
  • It is located primarily in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, northern Pakistan.
  • It is in the Indus River watershed basin.

Origin Of The Kunhar River And its Basin

  • The river originates from Lulusar Lake, nearly 48 kilometres (30 mi) upstream from Naran Valley.
  • Waters of Dudipat and Saiful Muluk Lakes feed the river besides glacial waters from Malka Parbat and other high peaks in the valley.
  • The Kunhar river flows through the entire Kaghan valley, Jalkhand, Kaghan, Balakot, Garhi Habibullah and Dalola.
  • The River joins with Jhelum River at confluence just outside Muzaffarabad, in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir province, Pakistan.

About Mirage 2000 Aircraft Used In Surgical Strike 2.0 By Indian Air Force

  • The Mirage 2000, also known as the Dassault Mirage 2000.
  • It is a single-engine fourth generation aircraft manufactured by Dassault Aviation, the same company which signed the Rafale aircraft deal with India.
  • The lightweight fighter jet was designed in the late 1970s to replace the existing Mirage III.
  • Some of the primary users of this aircraft are France, UAE, Egypt, Peru, Greece, Taiwan, Brazil, and India.

Key features (engine, arms capacity)

  • The Mirage 2000 is available in single-seat or twin-seat multi-role fighter variants.
  • It has a length of approximately 48 feet and a wingspan of 29 feet.
  • The height of the Mirage 2000 is 17 feet.
  • Load Carrying Capacity – While it weighs approximately 7,500 kilograms without load, a fully packed jet could have a weight of 13,800 kilograms. In terms of performance.
  • Speed Of Mirage 2000 – Mirage 2000 can reach top speeds of up to Mach 2.2 or 2,336 km/hour at high altitude while it can reach up to 1,110 km/hour in low altitude.
  • Fuel And Distance Cover – It has a flight range of 1,550 kilometres along with a drop tank or an external fuel tank which can be jettisoned when empty. It has a ferry range of 3,335 km with auxiliary fuel.

Why were specifically Mirage 2000 jets used for airstrikes on PoK terrorist launchpads?

  • Because Mirage 2000 has a speed of more than 2.2 Mach. Helps to evade air defense systems of Pakistan.
    It is a ground attack fighter that can carry a large load of munitions.
  • The type of operation carried out required deep penetration into Pakistani territory and Mirage 2000 is suited to that role. IAF was given the task of bombing and flattening JeM’s terror camps.
  • In Kargil, the Jaguars and Mirage 2000s had turned the tide in India’s favour. So it was a trusted aircraft and the IAF has had long experience with it.
  • If you ask why not Sukhoi or other aircraft, well, once again- Sukhois are for air superiority and air to air battles, not so much for ground bombing.
  • It was used effectively by the IAF in the 1999 war of Kargil and turned it in India’s favour.
  • It is also lighter than Sukhoi which gives it an advantage in quick operations
  • The Mirage-2000 uses a single shaft engine that is light and simple as compared to other fighter jet engines

How was Pakistani Air Defense unable to detect 12 Mirage-2000 Air Crafts of India?

  • Another Question Which Coming In Many Minds is Why pakistan Air force Was not Able To detect Mirage 2000 Aircraft . This is Not True . Mirage 2000 Can Be detected by Radars Easily By Pakistani Air force .
  • But there was A Strategy Which Was Used By Indian Air Force .
  • Indian Air force Sent fighter Planes At Different Locations .
  • India First Sent A IAF Fighter Planes team to the Sialkot and Lahore border. When the Pakistani air force challenged this team, the Indian fighters chose to stay within India. However with this, India had kept the first Pakistani Combat Air Patrol (CAP) team busy.
  • Than India Sent A 2nd team Of Fighter Planes To Bhawalpur . Than Again Same thing Happened ,Pakistan Sent a 2nd team to counter Indian Fighter Planes . In this Way India Made Busy 2nd team Also .
  • Last And Third Location Was Where Indian Air force  entered Muzaffarabad sector from Kiran Valley . Here Indian Air Force Striked again.
  • So We Can Say That Mirage 2000 Could be Detected Easily By Pakistani Air force But Indian IAF Planned in Much Better Way .

Here is The List Of 10 Famous Surgical Strikes In India And World

  • In June 2015, a team of some 70 Indian Army commandos carried out surgical strike inside the jungles of Myanmar. The 40-minute operation took out 38 dreaded Naga militants and left seven injured.The strike was planned hours after the Naga militants killed 18 soldiers in an ambush in Chandel area of Manipur on June 4, 2015.


  • In May 2011, the US special forces attacked an ISI safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden was hiding, taking him out in a contained attack. In the CIA-led operation, code-named as Operation Neptune Spear (also Operation Geronimo), was carried out by the US Navy SEALs.


  • The Israel Defense Forces’ famous hostage-rescue mission in Uganda’s Entebbe airport is remembered as one of the most clinical surgical strikes in history. In June 1976, members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked an Air France plane and forced it to land at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport. After the then Ugandan dictator, Idi Amin, made no attempts to rescue the hostages, the IDF stepped in. The strike was carried out by 100 Israeli commandos, and ended with all the militants being killed, and all except three passengers being rescued.


  • In 1961, US President John F Kennedy ordered a CIA-led invasion of Cuba by 1,400 Cuban exiles from The Bay of Pigs. The military mission to overthrow the Fidel Castro government met a disastrous end, with more than 100 soldiers being killed, and leading to the capture of 1,200 Cuban exiles.


  •  In November 1979, some Iranian students took 53 Americans hostage at the US Embassy in Iran’s capital, Tehran. Then US President Jimmy Carter initiated a secret rescue mission. However, the mission, Operation Eagle Claw, ended in complete disaster for the Americans with the US special forces getting stuck in sand storms, facing a fire during evacuation, and losing a helicopter in a crash. Eventually, eight US soldiers died and none of the hostages could be rescued. The botched surgical strike may have cost Carter his presidency.


  • In 1989, the US initiated a mission to capture Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega which culminated in a filmy ending. The US Navy SEALs cornered Noriega at a Roman Catholic facility in Panama City, but after heavy crossfire and being attacked with loud music by Guns N’ Roses and The Clash, Noriega surrendered.


  • In 1993, the US Special Forces’ mission to capture Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid went horribly wrong after two US Black Hawk helicopters were shot down.

  • In April 2003, US soldier Jessica Lynch was captured by Iraqi forces after her convoy was decimated in an attack in Nassiriya. Nine days later, US Special Forces attacked the hospital where she was kept and rescued her. They also recovered the bodies of eight US soldiers.


  • In March 2003, the CIA led a surgical strike in Pakistan to capture three terror suspect, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who was believed to be one of the key planner of the 9/11. The strike took place in Rawalpindi and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was taken to the Guantanamo Bay detention facility for “enhanced interrogation techniques”.


  •  In June 2006, the US Air Force sent warplanes to carry out a surgical strike on the safehouse of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq. After surviving the attack of 500-pound bombs, al-Zarqawi met his end at the hands of the US soldiers.
