The Indian Army has been put on a high alert to crush any Pakistani infiltrations along the Line of Control (LOC). The Indian Army has deployed Bofors howitzers to counter any misadventures by Pakistan army to push in infiltrators.
“Bofors guns have been used to hit at military targets inside the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) where terror camps are being aided and abetted by the Pakistan Army,” sources in the Army said.
According to the reports, the Army officials have said calibre escalation does take place during such ceasefire violations where each side aims to ensure its moral ascendancy and domination over the LOC.
“However, the Indian Army ensures that targets are only military and terrorists who are supported by the Pakistan Army,” they said.
Indian Army has successfully foiled Pakistan Army’s BAT (Border Action Team) attempt on the night of July 31 and August 1, 2019, in the Keran sector, killing at least five to seven intruders.
“In the last 36 hours, there have been a number of attempts by Pakistan to disturb peace in the Valley and target Amarnath yatris. A Border Action Team (BAT) attempt was made on one of the forward posts in Keran sector,” said a statement issued by the Army.
Reportedly, four bodies possibly of Pakistan SSG commandoes or maybe some of the terrorists, have been seen on own side of Line of Control in close proximity of Indian posts. The Indian Army has continued search operations and attempts to recover bodies are being continuously interfered by Pakistan troops deployed in the area.
“These activities by Pak establishes Pak’s complicity to terror activities and disrupt peace in J&K. In the last 36 hours, Pakistan has desperately attempted to revive terrorism and push terrorists from JeM and other groups”, an official said.
