The Army said on Friday it had shelled a terrorist launch pad and an ammunition dump across the de facto border in Jammu and Kashmir, shelling Pakistan for allegedly breaking an informal ceasefire between the two countries.
'There are reports of heavy damage on enemy side,' said a government spokesperson in Srinagar. India responded after being attacked in Keran Sector of Kupwara district, he said.
A TV channel showed drone camera footage released by the Indian Army, apparently showing Pakistani targets ablaze. Indian soldiers didn’t cross the Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border, in the military action, media reports said.
A news agency, quoting unnamed police officials, reported Pakistan had violated the ceasefire in Uri area of Baramulla district too. Six Indian security personnel were injured in Sunderbani-Nowshera sector of Rajouri district last week when Pakistan fired at them.
All through the week, it fired small arms and mortar shells along the LoC in Poonch district.
