New Delhi: The sixth day of the ninth month of the year reminds us of the value of the military in the history of the country. In fact, Pakistan’s Operation Gibraltar had given an appropriate response on September 6, 1965 by the Indian Army.
Operation Gibraltar was the key word in Pakistan’s strategy of infiltrating Jammu and Kashmir to start a revolt against Indian rule. If successful, Pakistan hoped to regain control of Kashmir, but for this the campaign turned out to be a major failure. In response, Indian troops intervened on September 6, 1965. Finally, war broke out and India defeated Pakistan in a big way.
