"There is nothing to be gained from debating whether the #SurgicalStrikes took place. What we should be objectively discussing is what the strikes changed on the ground," Omar wrote on his Twitter handle.

He was reacting to surfacing of a fresh video purportedly of surgical strikes carried out by the Army against terror camps in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir on 29 September 2016, 11 days after a deadly militant attack on an Army base in Uri sector of Kashmir which had left 19 jawans dead and several others injured.
