POR­OUS BORDER

Pathankot is lo­cated about 50 km off the in­ter­na­tional border with sev­eral un­fenced gaps caused by Ravi river and sea­sonal rivulets

PROX­IM­ITY TO PAK­ISTAN

As the border ter­rain is bro­ken and forested, the rivulet beds pro­vide ideal cover and shorter routes for ter­ror­ists to sneak in

HIGH-VALUE TAR­GETS

The Gur­daspur-Pathankot-Jammu high­way is dot­ted with a large num­ber of de­fence in­stal­la­tions and links J&K with rest of In­dia

TERROR LAUNCH PADS
