India responds to rattled Pakistan, destroys 5 Pakistani posts in response to ceasefire violations, neutralises 2 JeM terrorists in encounter

The sectors targeted by Pakistan include Krishna Gati, Balakote, Khari Karmara, Mankote, Tarkundi in Poonch district, Kalal, Baba Khori, Kalsian, Laam and Jhangar areas in Rajouri and Pallanwala and Laleali in Jammu

After Indian Air Force conducted airstrikes in Pakistan to destroy the terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), a humiliated Pakistan on Tuesday resorted to multiple ceasefire violations across the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, reports ANI.

According to the reports, the Pakistan Army has targeted civilian areas while violating the ceasefire by resorting to heavy mortar shelling on 55 forward areas in Jammu, Rajouri and Poonch districts on Tuesday. The Indian Army retaliated to the ceasefire violation and a heavy exchange of fire took place last night. Officials said the Pakistan army had earlier resorted to small arms firing along the LoC in Nowshera sector early Tuesday but there was no report of any casualty.

The sectors targeted include Krishna Gati, Balakote, Khari Karmara, Mankote, Tarkundi in Poonch district, Kalal, Baba Khori, Kalsian, Laam and Jhangar areas in Rajouri and Pallanwala and Laleali in Jammu.

Reportedly, the Indian Army said that the ceasefire violations by Pakistan began at around 6:30 pm on Tuesday. Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by shelling heavy calibre weapons in 12 to 15 places along the LoC. It added that Pakistani troops fired mortars and missiles from civilian houses, and used villagers as shields. However, the Indian Army targetted the Pakistani posts away from civilian localities.

The Pakistani military yet again violated ceasefire along the Line of Control on the early morning of Wednesday, injuring five Indian Army personnel. Two of the personnel have been shifted to Military hospital for further treatment. The condition of the injured soldiers is stable. India, in response, destroyed 5 Pakistani posts along the Line of Control.

Meanwhile, a massive encounter broke out between terrorists and security forces in Memander area of Shopian district, ANI reported. Two Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists were killed in the encounter. Five Indian Army soldiers suffered minor injuries as the fire was exchanged in the encounter in Shopian.

In the wake of the escalating tensions between India and Pakistan on the border, the district magistrate of Poonch on Tuesday ordered all government and private schools located within 5 kilometres range from LoC in the district to remain shut on Wednesday.

The desperation of Pakistan to attack India through a series of ceasefire violations comes at the backdrop of airstrikes carried out by the Indian Air Force to destroy the terror camps belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammad present in Pakistan. Six different locations in the area spread over 60 acres in Balakot, had been bombarded by the IAF in the early hours of the day.

Indian Air Force Mirage 2000 fighters destroyed multiple terrorist camps deep inside Pakistan to avenge the death of soldiers in the Pulwama terror attack. The Indian Air Force had carried out the pre-emptive attack to destroy the terror camps operated by the proscribed terror outfit Jaish-e-Muhammad. It was reported that the IAF jets had pulverised terror camps in Balakot (Pakistan), Muzaffarabad (PoK) and Chakoti (PoK) in the well-planned strike involving a fleet of IAF jets and other military jets.
