Five days after five army personnel were martyred in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara after Pakistan violated ceasefire, the Indian Army, in retaliation, targeted Pakistani terror launch pads, gun positions and an ammunition dump across LOC.
Indian Army also released a drone video of the attack wherein the Indian Army’s Bofors artillery guns can be seen hitting the targets.
The army says the targets were precisely hit and follows an unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the Keran sector of Kupwara.
This was done in retaliation after five Army personnel on Sunday were martyred while engaging with Pakistani terrorists in the Kupwara sector. The Indian Army had killed four terrorists and the fifth one who escaped from the encounter site was eliminated by soldiers near the Line of Control.
The soldiers were a part of Special Forces on a mission named Randori Behak. On April 5, which is four days after the mission began, the Special Forces squad had ventured onto a cornice, an overhanging patch of hardened snow with no underlying support. The cornice broke under the weight of two soldiers.
The soldiers fell in the exact area where the terrorists were hiding. A gunfight followed in which terrorists were killed.
The soldiers who lost their lives were Sub Sanjeev Kumar, Hav. Davendra Singh, Sepoy Bal Krishan, Sepoy Amit Kumar and Sepoy Chhatrapal Singh.
