Kargil Vijay Diwas

This year is the Kargil Vijay Diwas, which is being commemorated for the 24th time. The 2023 Kargil Vijay Diwas celebrates the historic armed struggle between Pakistan and India that broke out when Pakistani soldiers penetrated Indian territory in Jammu and Kashmir's Kargil area (now a part of the Ladakh Union Territory). May to July 1999 saw the Kargil War.

After learning about the initial incursion by neighborhood shepherds on May 3, 1999, the Indian Army launched "Operation Vijay." Operation Vijay's goal was to retake control of Indian territory, especially the Line of Control (LoC), which Pakistani intruders had taken over. "Operation Safed Sagar" airstrikes were carried out by the Indian Air Force on May 26 in support of the Indian Army.
