I heard this in this movie.
It was my op.
What does it mean?
Googling gave me : 'Original Poster'.
But that doesn't seem very meaningful.

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


"Op" is short for operation - in the context of your link, most likely of a military nature. The character was basically saying "It was my operation (mission)."

Definition from M-W online:

6 a : a usually military action, mission, or maneuver including its planning and execution

  • @MD.MohiuddinAhmed Just to be clear, op can be - and very often is - used to refer to a surgical operation (at least in British usage). So please don't think that op usually refers to a military operation (although I'm not disputing that that is the most likely usage in the quoted context). – TrevorD Jun 9 '13 at 13:25
  • @TrevorD, thanks anyway but the OP didn't ask about the definition of the word "operation" which would be off-topic for EL&U and really general reference. :-) – Kristina Lopez Jun 9 '13 at 13:32
