50 Years Ago, Pakistan Navy Sank ‘India’ Off ‘Dwarka’ Frustrated India will never be able to forget the damage Pakistan Navy dealt it in 'Operation Dwarka' carried out during indo-pak war 1965.
Operation Dwarka was a naval operation commenced by the Pakistan Navy to attack the Indian coastal town of Dwarka on 7 September 1965.
As the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 broke out between India and Pakistan over Kashmir, armies and air forces of both nations were involved in intense fighting in the Punjab region and in Kashmir. To relieve pressure on the southern front, Pakistan decided to use its navy in the war by launching a quick strike on Indian coast.
it was the first time Pakistan engaged its navy in any Indo-Pakistan Wars. It was one of the significant naval events of Indo-Pakistan war and Pakistan celebrates Sept 8 as Victory Day for Pakistan Navy..'Kargil war 1999..!" Pakistan Navy role in indo-pak war 1965!

A fleet of seven ships comprising PNS Babur, PNS Khaibar, PNS Badr, PNS Jahangir, PNS Alamgir, PNS Shah Jahan and PNS Tipu Sultan set sail for and bombarded the Indian coastal town 'Dwarka'.
The primary objective of the attack ostensibly was to destroy the radar station at Dwarka which Pakistani Naval intelligence believed had a Huff-Duff beacon to guide Indian bombers.
The Naval Radar Station was being used by the Indian Air Force (IAF) to attack Pakistan territory but, after the effective attack by the Pakistan Navy, IAF had to suspend its operation.
