Also known as Operation Vijay, Kargil war began on May 1999 and ended in July 1999. The war was fought between India and Pakistan, due to the trespassing of Pakistani troops on the Indian side of the LOC by wearing Kashmiri attires and occupying the peaks in Kargil; which are held by the Indian army. To mention, LOC is the border between the two countries and illegal crossing of the border is an offensive crime.
The Indian army responded by sending their brave soldiers on the high mountainous terrains to fight the Pakistani troops and take back the Indian posts. Indian Air Force supported the mission, resulting in the successful recapturing of the positions.
Operation Vijay was a success but, around 500 Indian soldiers lost their lives while others were severely injured in this battle. The soldiers who laid down their lives to protect their motherland deserve to be remembered for their bravery and thus, to pay a tribute to those war heroes, every year Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated on 26th July, and it was this day when the battle officially ended. The day is celebrated in the Kargil-Dras sector of Jammu and Kashmir and the national capital New Delhi.
