26th  july  kargil Vijay diwas. This day every year in honour of kargil war’s HEROES. 527 soldiers from Indian armed forces sacrificed their lives during the war.

  “It was winter time when Pakistan army sent it’s soldiers in the name of the intruders and take over the area, Their MAIN AIM was to cut off the connections between the Ladakh and Kashmir.”

This operation was code-named as Operation Vijay by the Army officials. The war ended On 26th July 1999, and Indian Prime Minister of that time Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared ‘Operation Vijay’s success.🇮🇳 From then the day is called as the Kargil Vijay Diwas or a Kargil War Day.

Indian army made us proud every time with there work! and sacrifices for the Motherland. I salute this Army with all my heart who are there for us in every difficult situation.They must surely be looking down upon India with pride and satisfaction.The least we can do is to keep them in our memory.

There were three major phases to the Kargil War. First, Pakistan infiltrated forces into the Indian-controlled section of Kashmir and occupied strategic locations enabling it to bring NH1 within range of its artillery fire. The next stage consisted of India discovering the infiltration and mobilising forces to respond to it. The final stage involved major battles by Indian and Pakistani forces resulting in India recapturing most of the territories held by Pakistani forces and the subsequent withdrawal of Pakistani forces back across the Line of Control after international pressure.
