5 Rupees Golden Jubliee 1965 Operations-2015 1st stike Issue

Tax excluded


The Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 took place between April 1965 and September 1965 between Pakistan
and India. The conflict began following Pakistan's Operation Gibraltar, which was designed to infiltrate
forces into Jammu and Kashmir to precipitate an insurgency against Indian rule. India retaliated by
launching a full-scale military attack on West Pakistan. The seventeen-day war caused thousands of
casualties on both sides and witnessed the largest engagement of armored vehicles and the largest tank
battle since World War II. Hostilities between the two countries ended after a United Nations mandated
ceasefire was declared following diplomatic intervention by the Soviet Union and the United States, and
the subsequent issuance of the Tashkent Declaration.
Despite both India and Pakistan claimed victory, most neutral assessments, however, agree that India had
the upper hand over Pakistan when the ceasefire was declared. Though officially deemed to be militarily
inconclusive, the conflict is widely seen as a strategic and political defeat for Pakistan, as it had neither
succeeded in fomenting insurrection in Kashmir nor had it been able to gain meaningful support at an
international level.
