On Saturday, the Indian Army foiled yet another infiltration attempt from across the border. The operation ended with the elimination of five terrorists in the Uri sector.
With that the Indian Army had foiled five infiltration attempts in three days.
According to a press statement released by the Indian Army, 13 terrorists were killed in 96 hours making the figure come to an astounding 1 every 7 hours.
“Relentless operations mounted by troops have successfully intercepted groups of armed intruders all along the LoC in Gurez, Machhil, Naugam and Uri sectors,” the Army said in a statement.
Four and three terrorists were killed in Machhil and Naugam sectors, respectively, while one was killed in Gurez.
With the advent of summer in the region, Pakistan continues to push terrorists from across the border into India. The terrorists are aided by shelling or cover fire from the Pakistani side.
While the achievement underlines the efficiency of the armed forces, it also points at Pakistan’s relentlessness with its nefarious designs of creating disturbance in India.
The killing of 13 terrorists in 96 hours is a cause of concern for the world community. It is a clear signal that Pakistan is the now world’s factory of terrorism, producing more fundamentalists per capita than scientists.
The map shared by the Indian Army also highlights that Pakistan is sending as many terrorists as possible from anywhere along the LoC and not from one or two particular areas.
Each terrorist group was heavily armed and was backed by heavy-artillery as a distraction for the Indian Army. It is the same strategy Pakistan used when on May 1 a Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) entered India and beheaded two Indian soldiers.
“The explosives, inflammable material, arms and ammunition recovered from the armed intruders indicate Pakistan’s designs to orchestrate high profile terror incidents targeting innocent civilian population and security forces during the holy month of Ramzan,” the statement added.
Even today, the Indian Army retaliated to a ceasefire violation by the Pakistani army. It should be noted that unlike the Indian Army, the Pakistani Army operates on its own will and does not de facto obey the command of the elected representatives in the government, including the Prime Minister.
