    If there is a military base, it is easy for someone to sneak around and launch a mortar attack. No security is foolproof. In this case, the modus operandii was slightly different.

    Mortar attacks and MANPADs were very frequently used by the Mujahideen against the Afghan and Soviet forces.

    Well the ISI/lashkar have gained a lot of experience over the years in conducting these kinda "commando style suicide raids" from the days of the Afgan war, to raiding IA bases in Kashmir & 26/11 Mumbai,i bet these guys are eager to achieve something similar in India as well! (Again) i hope we are well prepared and ready to tackle these "Mujhis" whenever they fancy trying to strike at our bases or anywhere in India.
