Army foils infiltration bid on LoC; knocks down two terrorists

Full freedom given to commanders to retaliate Pak action along LoC Army sources

"Indian Army has been doing pro-active operations along the LoC due to ongoing ceasefire violations and due to reports of 180 to 200 terrorists waiting to cross to the south of the Pir Panjal ranges, which includes areas of Poonch, Rajouri, Mendhar", army sources said.

The school van driver embraced martyrdom in the incident.

"The troops fired and the intruding terrorists were forced to withdraw back into the Pakistani side".

Dr. Mohammad Faisal urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement and investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations.

According to the military's press wing, Indian "unethical and unprofessional" approach across LoC continues terrorising civilians, and is severe violation of the Geneva Convention and ceasefire understanding.

He prayed for eternal peace to be granted to the departed soul and courage for the victim's bereaved family.

"Terrorists are disposable commodities for the Pakistan Army, just hitting them won't yield results, we have to hurt the Pakistan Army", he had said.

Indian ceasefire violations along the Line of Control have become a routine with 150 violations since the start of this year.

On Sunday, three civilians were wounded when Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing across the LoC.

On Wednesday, Minister for Defence Khurram Dastgir Khan told National Assembly as many as 1,394 ceasefire violations along Line of Control have been committed by Indian Army since Jan 1, 2017 to date.
