Doval had met his Paki counterpart in Bangkok few years back....
He told him about India's deep assets inside Pakistan who can take revenge anytime he wants...
This is one of the reason Paki misadventures didn't go beyond Kashmir. ImageImageImage

We need to take lessons

1. We always rush in to do room interventions especially if so called civilian is involved. But often these are traps or overground workers of terrorists or just plain sympathisers. Later they will be found stone pelting

2. Room interventions are very risky. You don't know the house layout, where the enemy is, who the enemy is. Casualties are inevitable. No army does room interventions as much as we do. Stand off ops are better even if there is some collateral damage

3. Don't put pressure on commander on ground to rush the op for results. Take as much time as needed...4/5/6/7/8 days. The terrorists are trapped. Starve them out. Let them make a fighting break out. Then we can pick them off without own casualties

#Handwara Op. - A recurring, underlying theme

While this low intensity conflict cannot be stopped, there is no need to prove ones bravery or uphold unit's izzat by getting into closed/ built up spaces or getting into imminent harm's way, again & again.

In the present instance, the CO was a SM** having been decorated twice for gallantry in the Valley.

You do that 2-3 times, successfully...the 4th time, lady luck turns it's back on you.

Terrorists get holed up - blow/ burn the damn place down, pay compensation or if the buggers get away, so be it.
You will get them, anyway. Another day, another time...
