In a major counteroffensive after Pakistan's firing, the Indian Army on Sunday carried out heavy artillery strikes targeting four launch pads and several Pakistani military positions in Neelam Valley in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, killing at least 6-10 Pakistani soldiers and destroyed three camps, India's government sources said on Sunday.
The Indian retaliation came a day after Pakistan military resorted to firing in Tangadhar sector along the Line of Control in which two Indian Army personnel and a civillian were killed. Three others were also injured in the attack, the Indian media reported citing the source.
Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said, "Six to 10 Pakistani soldiers have been killed and three terror camps have been destroyed."
He also said that the Indian Army used artillery guns to target terrorist camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
Bipin Rawat said that the Army had confirmed information that terrorists are coming closer to the forward areas especially the Keran, Tangdhar and the Naugaon sector.
"We have targeted these camps using our artillery guns. And the kind of information that we have received, the Pakistan army and the terrorists have suffered heavy casualties," he said.
He said, "Ever since Article 370 was abrogated from J&K, we have been getting repeated inputs of infiltration by terrorists from across the border to disturb peace and harmony in the state."
"Gradually, things are returning to normalcy in the Valley, but obviously there is somebody who is working behind the scenes at the behest of terrorists and agencies that are some within and some outside country in Pakistan and the PoK, who're trying to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere," Bipin Rawat said.
General Bipin Rawat said, "Last evening, an attempt was made in Tangdhar to infiltrate terrorists, we retaliated."
He also said, "Pakistan carried out attack firing at our post in which we did suffer but before they could attempt the infiltration, it was decided that we target the terror camps across."
"We had the coordinates of these camps. We have caused severe damage to terrorist infrastructure across," General Bipin Rawat said.
"In the retaliatory action, we have caused severe damage to terrorist infrastructure. Terrorist camps opposite Tangdhar sector have been destroyed," General Bipin Rawat said.
