Army targets launch pads as Pak violates LoC truce

New Delhi, April 10

The Army today claimed to have targeted militant launch pads and gun positions in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir following a ceasefire violation by Pakistan. The heavy shelling between the two armies along the Line of Control (LoC) this afternoon created panic in many parts of Kupwara district.

Defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said Pakistan violated ceasefire in the Keran sector and it was retaliated “effectively and strongly”.

“Precision targeting of gun areas, terrorist launch pads and ammunition dump was carried out and there were reports of heavy damage on the enemy side,” Col Kalia said. The Army also released a video showing the gun area and ammunition dump targeted in PoK. — TNS
