Srinagar: Around seven Pakistan Army soldiers were killed and a dozen were injured after Indian Army retaliated to Pakistan’s unprovoked ceasefire violation along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. Indian Army destroyed various enemy positions, terror launch pads and fuel dumps.
India too lost three soldiers in the unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan in a bid to push terrorists from their terror launch pads.
Top sources said that inputs suggest that six to seven Pakistan Army soldiers, including two SSG Commandos, were killed in retaliatory action while 10 to 12 were injured.
Indian Army resorted to heavy shelling and destroyed Pakistan Army bunkers, fuel dumps and launch pads across 200 km of the Line of Control.
The Indian Army released videos showing Pakistan Army positions being hit across the Line of Control on Friday.

The army said in a statement: “Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation along the LoC spread across multiple sectors including Dawar, Keran, Uri and Naugam.”
The force also said that Pakistan used mortars and other weapons. The shelling started at 11 a.m. and ended at 1 p.m. “Pakistan deliberately targeted civilian areas,” the Indian Army stated.
Three Indian Army soldiers have been killed in action while three others have been injured.
The force said that Indian troops retaliated strongly, causing substantial damage to Pakistan Army’s infrastructure, resulting in casualties across the LoC.
“Several ammunition dumps, FOL dumps and multiple terrorist launch pads have been damaged,” the Indian Army said.
Pakistan is making all attempts to push terrorists in the Valley amid snowfall in the region. “Hundreds of terrorists are holed up at launch pads across the Line of Control. We have inputs that Pakistan is making deliberate attempts to push them into the Valley,” said a source.
Earlier in the day, the Indian Army foiled an infiltration attempt at the Line of Control in the Keran sector on Friday even as Pakistan resorted to ceasefire violations in multiple sectors up to Uri along the LoC.
Three civilians were killed, two army soldiers and one BSF officer also died in action, official sources said.
“In the Cease Fire Violation started by the Pakistan, BSF Officer Sub Insp. Rakesh Dobhal laid down his life while retaliating fittingly. @BSF_Kashmir salute your supreme sacrifice, Braveheart!” BSF said.
