Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who visited the Indian Air Force (IAF) base in Pathankot on Saturday, said he was satisfied with the counter-offensive against terrorists, said reports.

Modi, who spent about an hour and a half at the airbase, reviewed the situation with the Air Force chief in the aftermath of the attack by Pakistani terrorists last Saturday that killed seven Indian security personnel, reported PTI.

"Noted with satisfaction the decision-making & its execution, the considerations that went into our tactical response: PM @narendramodi, (sic)" said a tweet by PMO India.

"Also noted coordination among various field units. Lauded bravery & determination of our men & women on the ground. They are our pride: PM, (sic)" another tweet said.

The prime minister took stock of the situation by visiting the scenes of the attack, which accentuated the vulnerability of the security installation. He also went around the Military Engineering Service Yard and the two-storey billet where security forces engaged the attackers.

Modi, who was briefed about the security situation, was also shown arms and ammunition recovered from the six terrorists who were neutralised in the counter-offensive.

He also carried out an aerial survey of the forward positions along the Indo-Pakistan border.
