Final Comparison between 26/11 & Pathankot Attacks
164 dead, 600+ injured, 15 Service Personnel killed, including Mumbai's top 5 Cops, one Army Major & one Army Commando.
Property worth crores destroyed. Compensation paid to the dead in crores.
7 Army Personnel dead, including Col, Niranjan, who actually did not die from a Terrorist's bullet. Rather, he died because, he did not wear his standard protective gear while handling an explosive laden dead body. Zero destruction to Property. Most importantly, not a single Civilian Causality and all critical assets at the Airbase which were the main targets of the attack safe and secure.
For those who dont know, Pathankot Airbase is the largest Airbase in the Country and one of the largest in the World spread over 2700 acres. Just it's boundary wall being 24Kms. This Air Base houses almost 50% of India's Air Force Fleet, which were the main targets of the attack.
Motto being cripple Pathankot, u cripple India!
Another fact being, this Air Base also houses the residential quarters of all it's employees. The Terrorists cud have easily entered these quarters out of frustration and mowed down hundreds of these families or at least taken many hostage. But, not a Single such Causality.
Such was the mastery of Ajit Doval on this Counter-Op. more
