The Indian Army is giving a befitting reply to unprovoked aggression by the enemy forces

However, the Indian Army is giving a befitting reply to unprovoked aggression by the enemy forces.

According to reports, Pakistani troops resorted to firing of small arms and mortar shells along the Line of Control (LoC) in the morning around 10 am.

Till reports last came in, heavy exchange of fire between India and Pakistan is on in both the sectors, said sources.

Sources said that the frequent ceasefire violations by the Pakistani army was solely aimed at pushing terrorists waiting at their launch pads across the LoC to carry out violence in the Kashmir valley by targeting the security forces and the civilians.

The National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Saturday had state that, “there are Pakistani communication towers 20 km along border, they are trying to send messages.” He said that India has heard intercepts and the Army was prepared to fight against any infiltration attempts by Pakistan, adding that majority of Kashmiri support Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government’s move to abrogate Article 370.

NSA had also lashed out at terrorist outfits, after posters emerged in the Kashmir Valley threatening apple farmers and transporters, warning them of dire consequences on sending their produce to India. Doval said, “Pakistan-sponsored terrorists are making all efforts to prevent the restoration of normalcy. It is evident by the killing of civilians and putting threatening posters.”

Earlier on August 30, the government released data which revealed that there have been more than 222 incidents of ceasefire violations by the Pakistani troops along the LoC ever since the Centre abrogated Article 370 and divided Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories on August 5.
