The Army on Tuesday said that punitive fire assaults were being undertaken across the Line of Control (LoC) to counter militant action from Pakistan, ANI, a news gathering agency reported.
The Army also issued a video, showing Indian troops destroying the Pakistani posts in Nowshera sector of Jammu and Kashmir, which is said to have been conducted on May 9.
“The Pakistan Army has been providing support to armed infiltrators by engaging the Indian Army forward troops from their weapons emplacements and pill boxes closer to the LoC,” Additional Directorate General of Public Information (ADG PI) Major General A.K. Narula said in a press conference here.
According to the news agency, Major general said that recent action in Nowshera has caused damage to the Pakistan Army posts, which were supporting infiltration.
Maj. Gen. Narula also said that Rocket Launchers (RL), Anti Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM), Automated Grenade Launchers (AGL) and recoilless guns were used to carry out the operation. He further said that as the snow in the Valley melts and the blockage on the passes opens, increase in infiltration will be expected.
“The Indian Army proactively dominates the LoC; we want peace and tranquility in the state of Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
In recent days, the ceasefire violation along the LoC has increased considerably.
Commenting on the attack by the Indian army on Pakistan posts, Congress leader RS Surjewala said, “Salute the valor and courage of Indian Army for destroying Pak posts which were abetting infiltrators from Pakistan,”
