Pak Army's tit-for-tat video shows damaged Indian posts

"It is essential that the infiltrations along the Line of Control are controlled", Indian Major General Ashok Narula told reporters, referring to the disputed border between the Pakistani and Indian sides of Kashmir, known as the LoC. The Army even released video footage of the same and claimed that a huge loss has been imposed on the Pakistani side. However, the area of the operation was not clearly identifiable in the clipping. Giving details of the strikes, he said that rocket launchers, anti-tank guided missiles, automated grenade launchers and recoilless guns were used.

"As a part of our counter-terrorism operations, punitive fire assaults across the Line of Control are being undertaken by the Indian Army", an army spokesperson said. "Infiltration attempts, backed by the Pakistan Army-ISI combine, are increasing with the snow melting in the mountain passes". Since July 2016, when Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani was killed in an anti-terror operation, the valley has been under a lock-down with separatist leaders leading the agitation. With the recent #HurriyatTruthTapes expose, the governments both at the Centre and in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, have made a decision to come across as firm against Pakistan-driven agitation, unrest and indeed full-fledged terror operations. The Army clarified that it wanted peace and tranquility in Jammu and Kashmir and for this objective, infiltrations needed to be controlled along the Line of Control.

In the wake of the alleged Indian aggression, Pakistan Army claimed that "a befitting and stern response was mounted on Indian posts causing substantial losses to military men and material".

Indian Defence Minister Arun Jaitley posted on Twitter that the army was taking "preemptive and measured actions" to counter terrorism.

Army on Tuesday released a clip that dates back to May 9 showing bunkers on Pakistani being decimated in an assault by Indian army.

It said the Indian troops deployed on the LoC "targeted UNMOGIP vehicle along LOC in Khanjar sector". "When will it stop infiltration from Pakistan?"

New Delhi denied that Pakistani fighter jets violated Indian airspace and said the Pakistan Army video was false. Pak response restricted to mil tgts only. Pakistan denied responsibility. New Delhi won a symbolic victory over Islamabad last week when the U.N.'s top court ordered Pakistan to stay the execution of an Indian national convicted of spying.
