The Indian Army is carrying out targeted, intelligence-based strikes on terror launch pads along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. This was confirmed by Indian defense minister – Rajnath Singh.
The former home minister of India stated: “The Indian Army is prepared for all contingencies and I can assure the country that we are prepared to defend our sovereignty from adversarial forces in all scenarios.”
“As you would have understood from the operations along the LoC in the last two weeks, we are dominating the enemy through targeted intelligence-based strikes on their launch pads and neutralizing them before they set foot on Indian soil,” Singh added.
Despite the rise in coronavirus cases in the region, Pakistan has continued ceasefire violations. In addition to this, they are also making collective efforts to send militants into Jammu and Kashmir and fan the violence.
Indian Army Cheif Gen M M Naravane had earlier blasted Pakistan and said:” While India is sending out medical teams to other countries and exporting medicines, Pakistan is only exporting terror.”
The Indian Army is retaliating effectively after the ceasefire violation by Pakistan by specifically targeting ammunition storage across the LoC along with terror launch pads. According to various military sources, several terror launch pads along the Pakistani side of LoC were successfully destroyed by the Indian army.
These violations and shelling have become a frequent sight along the LoC following India’s decision to lift the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the state into two union territories in august last year.
A total of 1,565 ceasefire violations took place between August and December after the India reorganized Jammu and Kashmir. The army has not let its guard down and continues to retaliate in these sensitive areas while battling the pandemic too.
Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported citing Indian media reports – the Indian Army said they have aggressively retaliated to unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistan by targeting terror launch pads and ammunition storage across the border.
