New Delhi, Feb 26 (IBNS): Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday appreciated Indian Air Force for conducting surgical strike successfully across the Line of Control.

The Indian government on Tuesday said the IAF had carried out a "non-military pre-emptive" surgical strike.

Briefing the media, India's foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale said the strike aimed at Jaish camps.
