Tensions between India and Pakistan are soaring amidst continuous ceasefire violations by both sides. Two Indian Army porters have been killed while two others suffered injuries along the volatile Line of Control (LoC) in the Gulpur sector of the Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir.
Ahead of the Indian Republic Day, the Indian government has alleged that approximately 300 terrorists, including some from Afghanistan, are being readied at launchpads in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir to infiltrate into India.
According to Indian news agency, IANS, the latest intelligence report mentions that around 40-50 terror launchpads are currently active in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir and are being aided by Pakistan’s intelligence agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Pakistan Army.
Neelam, Leepa and Tangdhar valleys in PoK near the Line of Control (LoC) are reported to be the regions where these terrorist launchpads are based, the IANS report reveals. The report warns that these terrorists are set to infiltrate into India to carry out major attacks in Jammu and Kashmir and other major cities.
Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported citing intelligence inputs, Pakistan-based terror groups may target vital installations in several key Indian cities. Pakistan’s plan is to trigger series of terror attacks in Kashmir to project to the international community that situation in the Valley is fast deteriorating following India’s decision to withdraw special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the state into two union territories.
