The Indian Air Force (IAF) Chief B S Dhanoa on Thursday said IAF personnel are fully prepared to undertake full spectrum of air operations and respond to any challenge in befitting manner.
Commenting on the preparedness of IAF, Dhanoa said, "IAF is prepared to fight at short notice in full synergy with other two sister services, should the need arise."
He said, "IAF has capability to carry out full spectrum of air operations," adding "Surgical strike is a decision that has to be taken by Govt of India."
