Kargil Diwas is celebrated every year on July 26 in memory of the servicemen who lost their lives in the 1999 Kargil War. It is a day to honour our brave fighters of the Indian Armed Forces who achieved the heights of Kargil from the Pakistani infiltrators.
'Operation Vijay' was initiated after Pakistani infiltrators captured the Kargil outposts in the winters of 1998-1999. It lasted for 60 days in Ladakh Kargil, India, throwing out the military forces of neighboring countries.
