“India has carried out precision targeting of gun areas, terrorist launch pads and ammunition in response to unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Keran sector of Kupwara district. There have been reports of heavy damage on their (Pakistan side), an Indian Army defense spokesperson said.

He also added that all the forces in the Kupwara, Nowshera, Krishna Ghati, Baramulla, Anantnag, Pulwama, and Shopian region and also in some specific zones Kashmir were put on high alert.

The exchange has erupted five days after five Indian Special Forces soldiers were killed in a major high altitude encounter in Kupwara sector of Jammu and Kashmir. The Indian Army has released the drone footage of the retaliation.

The captured drone footage has shown an ammunition dump being hit by Indian Bofors Guns. On Sunday a team of five Indian elite para commandos engaged in a fierce gun and hand-to-hand battle with terrorists. All the five commandos embraced martyrdom and killed the four terrorists. A fifth terrorist was killed at the LOC by Indian Forces.

On first April, As EurAsian Times reported, Indian Forces began operation Randori Behak. Soldiers deployed in the Kupwara sector repeatedly picked and lost trail of terrorists for the next three days. On the dawn of April 5, the commandos ventured on a cornice, an overhanging patch of snow with no support. The cornice broke under the weight of two soldiers and the team fell into the spot where the terrorist were hiding and a gunfight ensued in which all the five soldiers faced martyrdom.

The number of CFVs has jumped after New Delhi abolished the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 last year. “The hike in CFVs has continued since then, though there has been a general dip in terrorist violence in the hinterland. With the snow in the mountain passes melting now, there has also been a spike in infiltration attempts,” said another officer.
