Following the operation that pulverised launch pads for terrorists in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) in what was Indian Army’s retaliatory attack against the ceasefire violation by the western neighbour, Army chief General Bipin Rawat said today that around six to ten Pakistani soldiers and as many terrorists had been killed in the action.

“Last evening an attempt was made in Tangdhar to infiltrate terrorists, we retaliated, 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 that terror camps across,” Rawat said.

“In the retaliatory action, we have caused severe damage to terrorist infrastructure. Terrorist camps opposite Tangdhar sector have been destroyed. On the basis of reports that we have been getting, six to ten Pakistani soldiers have been killed, three camps have been destroyed. A similar number of terrorists have also been killed…” the general added.

Pakistan is, of course, in no mood to accept there have been casualties on their side. They do not even acknowledge that the Indian Army had targeted their terror camps in the PoK. Pakistan said it could arrange for a visit of diplomats from P5 nations to the area to “expose” India’s “falsehood”. Pakistani Foreign Office (FO) spokesman Mohammad Faisal said, “Pakistan categorically rejects Indian media reports about alleged launchpads being targeted by India along the LoC.”

The FO said, in fact, that Pakistan had called upon the P-5 countries (permanent members of the United Nations Security Council) to ask India to provide information about the terror launchpads.

Pakistan Army spokesman Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor rejected the reports saying the Indian media was “falsely claiming” it had targeted “alleged” terror camps.

Ironically, though, Pakistan summoned the Indian envoy to condemn the firing by Indian troops. Gaurav Ahluwalia was told the Indian Army had killed five civilians along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jura, Shahkot and Nausehri Sectors.

This was India’s third significant strike inside Pakistan or the territory held by the western neighbour after the surgical strike to avenge the Uri terror attack and Balakot airstrike to retaliate against the killing of CRPF jawans in Pulwama — although physical crossing of the international border or the LoC was not involved in today’s operation.

The Indian Army used artillery guns to target terrorist camps in PoK. Gen Rawat said, “Ever since #Article370 was abrogated, we have been getting repeated inputs of infiltration by terrorists from across the border to disturb peace and harmony in the region.”
