Army kills 7 Pak soldiers along LoC in retaliation

Pakistan's foreign minister Khawaja Asif

The Pakistani government on its official Twitter handle claimed that four of its soldiers were killed in Indian firing.

"If we are forced, then we may resort to "other action" by stepping up military offensive", General Rawat added. The retaliation on Monday began when the Indian Army noticed movement by Pakistan forces opposite the Mendhar sector. The "retaliatory" strike coincided with the Army Day celebrations and was aimed at sending across a tough message to Pakistan over repeated provocations aimed at escalating tensions in the region.

"This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed more than 1900 ceasefire violations, " it said in a statement, as it reiterated Pakistan's threat that ceasefire violations may lead to a "strategic miscalculation".

"During the night a group of infiltrating militants were challenged by the army, triggering a fierce exchange of fire in which five militants were killed", superintendent of Indian police Imtiyaz Hussain told AFP.

Pakistan was an atomic power and India knew very well the result of any misadventure, he said, adding the capture of Kulbushan Yadav had proved Indian involvement in terror activities inside Pakistan to sabotage China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

In Uri sector in north Kashmir, Pak-sponsored infiltrators used river base with low water discharge during winters to cross the LoC before they were gunned down by the forces. "Every citizen of India has unwavering trust and pride in our Army, which protects the nation and is also at the forefront of humanitarian efforts during times of natural disasters and other accidents", he said.
