How Israel helped India win the Kargil War

Vishal Thapar / CNN-IBN

Published on Monday , July 30, 2007 at 03:18

New Delhi: There were those who applauded the Indian restraint in Kargil War, and pressured Pakistan to blink and pull back after three months of combat. And there were those who actually jumped into the war zone to help India hunt down the aggressors.

Read part one: The truth about Kargil War

Israel sprung to India's aid for providing the desperately-needed imagery about Pakistani positions on the Kargil heights.

"The terrains where they came from was all stones. The intruders merged in the background and it was not very easy to locate them. Secondly the targets where they had occupied the peaks, were also on the other side of the hills," Air Marshal PS Ahluwalia told CNN-IBN.

Tel Aviv stepped in with unmanned reconnaissance aircraft or drones in the battle zone to assist India direct its war effort. This was one force multiplication Pakistan had not reckoned with.

"Unmanned UAVs make a lot of difference. They fly for much longer - up to 24 hours and are able to sense even simple movements on the ground,” he said.

The Israeli Heron and Searcher UAVs were critically useful for target information, as most of India's aerial surveillance aircraft were either too quick, or vulnerable to enemy missile fire.

An Indian Air Force Canberra snooping over the Batalik was hit by a Pakistani stinger on May 21, exposing the limitations of India's photo reconnaissance platforms.

Did the operation show India’s desperation? “In war you have to try everything and come across with whatever methods you have got,” said Air Marshal PS Ahluwalia.

The Israeli Heron and Searcher UAVs are now flown by the Indian Armed forces. And strategic ties with India's undeclared war ally are on fast track.

Thank You, Israel.

May we become even closer friends in the near future and hopefully we'll get a chance to repay this debt that we owe you.

Israel and India could cooperate very closely in fighting the menace of Islamic terrorists. India should learn something from Israel about how to defend oneself aggressively.

Funny how two apartheid states talk of extremism. They are a good match though, both have got their ass whooped by Pak military, both are involved in genocide and illegal occupation and so on. But let that be a sign to india and that india is no match for Pakistan, it will always needs its mommy to get it out of a beating. Im surprised indians here in comments section seem proud of that, bu then again, indians.

Pakistan FTW

the two comments above from pakis show why we will win any wars with them, in the future also. i dont know if we won the last wars with pakis, but bangladesh seems to be free, so we must have won. at least i am open to thinking. they are so brainwashed, it is amazing if they are even from human species.

Thanks a lot Israel. Hopefully, we (India) will get a chance to assist you in future be it in any field and not just in military.
