15 Pakistani soldiers were killed in retaliatory firing by Indian forces along LoC in last two days, according to a senior Army official.
According to reports, Pakistan has been taken aback by the massive retaliation from the Indian side.
“Indian forces are giving befitting reply to firing from the Pakistani side. 15 Pakistani soldiers have been killed in last two days. It has been accepted by Pakistan. India will continue to give befitting response to Pakistani firing,” Brigadier J S Badhwar of JK Light Infantry said.
Earlier in the day, Vice Chief of Indian Army Sarath Chand had asserted that Pakistan will definitely get befitting response that will be visible to all.
On Sunday, Captain Kapil Kundu and three other jawans of Indian Army were killed in heavy Pakistani shelling along the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts of Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistani forces opened unprovoked heavy firing and shelling along the LoC in Bhimbher Gali sector and it was a massive ceasefire violation as the Pak Army used mortars as well as anti-tank guided missiles.
Normally, such missiles are not used in ceasefire violations along LoC. However, Pakistan crossed all the limits on Sunday and deliberately targeted civilians as well.
