Pakistan carried out heavy shelling targeting both the LOC and the international border. In retaliation, the Indian Army also opened fire.

The firing on Pakistan also targeted rural areas. Meanwhile, four militants were killed in separate encounters in Jammu and Kashmir. The terrorists were associated with Jaish-e-Mohammed.

Police said a search operation was conducted by security on the basis of information in Chingam area of Kulgam district. Meanwhile, the terrorists came to know about the heavy firing. Two terrorists were shot dead during the operation. The slain terrorists are Tariq Ahmed Mir (a resident of Kulgam) and Samir Bhai alias Isman, a resident of Pakistan.
The army and civilians crossed the attack
The two militants had earlier attacked the army as well as civilians. And were associated with Jaish-e-Mohammed. An M4 rifle and a pistol were recovered from the terrorists. Another operation was carried out in Pulwama in which two militants were also killed. Four terrorists have been killed in two separate operations in a single day.
Pakistan’s infiltration attempt failed
Pakistan, on the other hand, tried to smuggle weapons across the border into India. However it was thwarted due to the vigilance of the army. In the Kishan Ganga river passing through Kupwada, the army’s attention was drawn to the weapons tied with tubes. These include four AK-47 rifles, eight magazines, 240 rounds.
Large number of Pak infiltrations failed this year: Army
There is a massive attempt by Pakistan to infiltrate terrorists. However, the offensive was foiled by the Indian Army, an official said.
Attempted intrusion more than 30 times
Many intrusions have been thwarted, especially this year. Army Commander Lieutenant General B.S. Raju said the terrorists have managed to infiltrate only 30 times this year. Last year, however, the figure was less than 30. I believe that if the infiltration of Pakistani terrorists is thwarted, the number of terrorists in Kashmir will also gradually decrease and the situation will calm down.
There were more than 300 terrorists on the LOC
“Our vigilantes are currently monitoring Pakistan’s infiltration using every technology on the border,” he said. Asked how many militants are currently on the border, the army official said that according to intelligence, there were about 300 militants on the LOC earlier. However we have been successful in preventing them from moving forward.
