Seven Pakistani soldiers Killed In “Retaliatory Action” Along LoC in Poonch

Srinagar: On a day when six Pakistani terrorists were killed by the security forces in Uri during an infiltration bid, the Indian Army in a retaliatory action killed seven Pakistani soldiers along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch sector.

We will not let anti-India activities succeed at any cost

According to defence sources, out of the seven killed, at least four of the deaths were confirmed by the Pakistani government in a tweet on Monday.

The Indian Army’s action comes after an Indian soldier was martyred in Pakistani firing in the Rajouri district on Saturday.

Defence sources said that the Indian Army has carried out retaliation against Pakistani troops across Jaglote area along the LoC in Mendhar sector of Poonch district.

It is worth mentioning here that the Army Chief Bipin Rawat said on Monday morning at a function to mark Army Day, “If we are forced, then we may resort to ‘other action’ by stepping up military offensive.”

General Rawat said the Pakistan army had been continuously trying to help terrorists sneak into India along the Line of Control. “We are using our might to teach them a lesson. We will keep effectively retaliating to any provocative action by Pakistan,” he said.

“We will not let anti-India activities succeed at any cost,” the army chief asserted.
