After days of standing Pakistan’s unprovoked firing on the Indo_Pak Border, the Indian Army on Sunday carried out a series of heavy artillery strikes, targeting four terror launch pads and several Pakistani military positions. About 6-10 of their soldiers and as many terrorists were killed in the process, Army Chief Bipin Rawat said in an interview later.
The Indian retaliation came a day after the Pakistan military resorted to firing in the Tangadhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir along the Line of Control to assist infiltration by terrorists. Two Indian Army personnel and a civilian died in the process. Three others were injured in the attack. “If Pakistan continued with such activities, the Indian Army would not hesitate to retaliate”, the Army chief added.
“We will completely destroy the terrorist camps and if they don’t mend their ways, we will go further inside their territory,” said S.P. Malik, the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir. Yet, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal denied these claims, and said it can arrange a visit of diplomats from P5 nations to the area to expose Indian “falsehood”.
