The army has carried out "surgical strikes" yesterday to prevent Pakistani terrorists who had "positioned themselves at launch pads along the Line of Control with aim to carry out strikes in Jammu and Kashmir and other metros," the army said today.
Almost 20 infiltration attempts have been foiled by army successfully this year.
Infiltration of terrorists across Line of Control has been a matter of serious concern.
We have recovered items including GPS and stones with Pakistani markings.
Captured Pakistani terrorists have confessed to their training in Pakistan or territory controlled by Pakistan.
Matter taken up at highest diplomatic levels and military levels at regular times.
We had proposed fingerprints and DNA samples of killed terrorists can also be made available.
Despite Pakistan commitment not to allow its territory for terrorism, no let up in terror actions.
Based on specific and credible information received yesterday that some terrorist teams had positioned themselves at launch pads at LoC with aim to infiltrate, the army conducted surgical strikes last night at these launch pads.
Significant casualties to terrorists and those supporting them.
