DRAS (Jammu and Kashmir): Army chief General Dalbir Singh on Saturday said the armed forces will not let another Kargil like conflict take place.

“Won’t allow another Kargil,” Singh said after paying tributes to the Kargil war martyrs at a memorial in Jammu and Kashmir’s Dras sector.

The Kargil War was an armed conflict between India and Pakistan that took place between May and July 1999 in Jammu and Kashmir's Kargil District and elsewhere along the Line of Control (LOC).

The conflict, which claimed the lives of more than 500 officers and soldiers, many of whom were posthumously given gallantry awards, is also referred to as Operation Vijay, which was the name of the Indian operation that cleared the Kargil sector.

The town of Kargil is located 205 km from Srinagar, and faces Pakistan's so-called Northern Areas across the Line of Control.
