Army kills 7 Pak soldiers along LoC in retaliatory action

"If we are forced, then we may resort to "other action" by stepping up military offensive", he was quoted by PTI as saying.

Indian troops guarding the LoC took positions and targeted the Pakistani post involved in the ceasefire violation in Kotli by retaliatory action of heavy shelling, he said. "Exchange of fire killed three Indian soldiers, besides injuring few others", said the ISPR.

Due to strong Indian retaliation, the desperate Pakistan Army has been under pressure to launch revenge strikes/BAT operations targeting forward Indian posts.

However, there was no official confirmation from the Indian Army authorities till late evening about the exact number of fatal injuries inflicted on the Pakistani side of the border in the "punitive" strike.

"This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed more than 1900 ceasefire violations", the Foreign Office said.

The firing and huge smoke emitting from LoC has caused fear and panic among the local residents as they are expecting rise in border skirmishes between Indian and Pakistani troops in the coming days.

Ryan Giggs Becomes Manager Of Wales
Giggs, who earned 64 caps for Wales during his playing career between 1991 and 2007, succeeds Chris Coleman as the Wales manager. We haven't been at a World Cup since 1958, I want to be there and I believe we can do it with this group of players'.

Even today, at least five Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists tried to enter India at Uri before being killed by security forces. "We are working to stop them", he added.

The Army Chief added that his forces will not let anti-India activities succeed in JK at any cost. With ceasefire violations along the heavily militarised LoC becoming the norm, rather than the exception, is the 2003 ceasefire agreement effectively dead? "Also, four others were wounded", they said.

As per the data compiled by the Union Home ministry, Pakistani forces have violated ceasefire 724 times along the IB and the LoC till October in comparison to 449 times in 2016. Now, Pakistan has done a very good job of figuring out our temperament in Kashmir and how we operate militarily.

Admitting the failure of Indian policies in the region, Rawat was quoted as saying, "The armed forces operating in the state can not be status quoist, and must evolve new strategies and tactics to deal with the situation".

Sources said huge smoke was emitting from near the LoC.
