Army’s targeted strikes over Pak’s LoC shelling | India News

JAMMU: India has cranked up precision strikes at terror launch pads and gun positions across the Line of Control in response to ceasefire violations by Pakistan, even as Army chief General M M Naravane again warned Islamabad of dire consequences for its “myopic and limited agenda” of pushing terrorists into J&K, reports Sanjay Khajuria.
Sources said the Army had conducted the “targeted strikes” at several locations along the 778-km LoC, including across the Poonch, Rajouri, Akhnoor and Baramulla sectors. “We are retaliating with pinpointed strikes since we do not want civilian casualties on the other side. If Pakistan opens up with artillery guns, we respond similarly,” said a source.
There has been a further spike in the cross-border firing duels since the Handwara encounter on Saturday, in which two terrorists were killed while five security personnel laid down their lives. India has recorded over 1,450 ceasefire violations by Pakistan already this year. “I would like to emphasise that the Indian Army will give proportionate response to all acts of infringement of ceasefire and support to terrorism. The onus remains with Pakistan to bring peace in the region. Unless Pakistan gives up its policy of state sponsored terrorism, we will continue to respond appropriately and with precision,” said Naravane.
