The Kargil War, also known as the Kargil conflict took place in Kargil, Kashmir 19 years ago and went on for 3 months from May to July in 1999. The cause was the infiltration of Pakistan Soldiers on the Indian side of the Line of Control (LOC) and the capture of The Tiger Hill. The Pakistani military taking the advantage of the terrain, climatic conditions and positioning themselves on key positions attacked, assuming that their strategy will act as a weakness for Indian military, but the Indian Army overcame their strategies and launched “Operation Vijay” which was declared successful on July 26, 1999, and is celebrated as Vijay Diwas. The Victory came with the martyr of 527 soldiers.
“Tiger Hill” was again a dominant feature of the mountains of Kargil, which has seen one of the bloodiest wars that India has ever fought. The humongous mountain at an elevation of 5,307 meters in the territory of India was infiltrated by both the Pakistani army and terrorists 19 years ago. This resulted in one of the deadliest wars in the history of India. Although the war was eventually won due to the courage of the Indian army, wherein Yogendra Singh Yadav played a major role.
