Last week after Pakistan resorted to ceasefire violations aimed at pushing terrorists into India that led to the death of two soldiers and one civilian in the Tangadhar sector, the Indian army retaliated employing high-calibre artillery. The Indian artillery barrage destroyed terrorist launch pads in POK located in Jura, Athmuqam and Kundalsahi.
The firing also targeted Pakistan posts which were actively supporting infiltration by resorting to ceasefire violations.
