    Eight Pakistan Army soldier were killed and several injured as Indian Army retaliated to unprovoked ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir today.

    Pakistan Army started heavy mortar shelling and firing at two Indian positions in Jhanger and Sher Makedi village near the LoC in Naushera, triggering of a gun duel, a defence official said.

    "Pakistan Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars on Indian posts on the LoC in two villages of Naushera sector in Rajouri district at around 8 am. Indian Army posts are retaliating strongly and effectively," said Defence Ministry spokesman, Lt Col Manish Mehta.


    According to the defence sources, mortar shell fired by the Indian Army fell into an Army camp across the border and Pakistan suffered maximum causality.

    Pakistani helicopters and ambulances were seen from across the border to shift the injured and dead Pakistan Army soldiers to near by hospitals.

    These areas normally remain calm but Pakistan is now using soft areas for infiltration of armed terrorists from old routes. The Pakistan Army is giving cover fire to terrorists so that they can infiltrate to kick-up violence in the border districts of Rajouri and Poonch, defence officials said.

    Intelligence agencies have already alerted the Army and the state police that this summer will be hot and more than 100 terrorists are waiting on launching pads near Line of Control to cross over to the Indian side.

    Honestly, why do we even let the LOC cool down...? We're clearly winning the fire exchanges, and keeping the LOC hot stretches Pakistan thin between trying to deal with us and trying to deal with all their terror groups and freedom movements. I don't see why India should ever stop pressing this advantage.

    @Hellfire
    Pakistan Army has fired its 120mm heavy mortars , and its British Pounders quite a lot, does BSF has the authority to reply with 105mm light field guns in response to heavy mortars ?Or field guns are used only when Pakistan uses it ?

    And I know BSF units do have 120mm mortars too, but do they have 160mm ones ?

    Not saying if used today, but since last year use of 120mm mortars have increased. Especially after the surgical strikes.And when we reply in kind, often causing much more destruction, they run for a hotline to cool things down.

    First of all RIP to the dead.

    Very aggressive reply by the army but that's what needed while dealing with an enemy with no morality whatsoever.
