Army foils infiltration bid by terrorists

"Some suspicious movement was noticed in general area of Mendhar on early Thursday morning", defence spokesman here said.

They said the Indian Army has been inflicting heavy casualties to Pakistani troops while replying to Pakistani shelling along the LoC in the last few weeks. The forces also gunned down four terrorists after an intense encounter that went on for more than a day.

On February 9, three Army jawans were injured in intermittent firing and shelling by Pakistani troops along the LoC in Poonch district.

Skirmishes along the LoC have seen an increase after the right-wing government of Narendra Modi came into power in India. "A search operation is now going on in the area", the sources added. The assessment is there are around 400 terrorists in and around "launch pads" along the LoC, both south and north of the Pir Panjal range, looking for an opportune time to sneak into J&K.


This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from 2017 when Indian forces committed more than 1970 ceasefire violations.

The number of terrorists is much more than the number previous year indicating a "hot-summer" ahead.

While there is no official word from the Indian side on the offensive, the Pakistan Foreign Office in Islamabad issued a press statement condemning India for "unprovoked ceasefire violations" on Thursday in the Battal sector and "targeting the civilians".
