The Indian Army, on Tuesday, in an emergency briefing, announced that it has conducted punitive fire assaults on Pakistani Army posts across the Line of Control. Addressing the media over the counter-insurgency operations in Nowshera sector in Jammu and Kashmir, ADGPI Major General Ashok Narula stated that punitive action is being undertaken by the Indian Army across the LoC.

“The Indian Army has inflicted damage to posts across LoC in Naushera sector in response to firing by Pakistan,” Major General Narula said. “The Pakistani Army has been providing support to armed infiltrators. The locations aiding infiltration of terrorists are being targeted and destroyed,” he added. The Army has also released a video of the Pakistani bunkers being destroyed.

Unlike the surgical strikes of last September when the Army crossed the LoC to target terrorist camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK), Indian soldiers in this case fired mortar shells from their side of the border. Bunker busting guns and anti-tank guided munitions were used in the attack, the report said. Major-General Ashok Narula gave details about counter-infiltration operations that the army is engaged in at a press conference in New Delhi. The army also released a video of the operation which shows it decimating Pakistani bunkers and forward posts.

Referring to growing tension in the Valley with youth taking an anti-Indian Army stand, Narula stressed that infiltration could help bring the Kashmiri youth on the right track. “It is essential to bring down the number of terrorists in Kashmir so that the youth of Kashmir are not adversely affected by terrorists from abroad.”

According to a Home Ministry reply to a Right To Information (RTI) petition, Pakistan violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) 449 times in 2016 as compared to 405 violations in 2015. 23 security personnel were killed in the two-year period.

The internal situation in the Valley is also going through the same situation, where encounters and killings have become a daily show.
