Indian Army has destroyed three terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir and killed ten Pakistani soldiers. In a major counter-offensive after unprovoked firing by Pakistan, Indian Army carried out heavy artillery strikes targeting four terror camps and several Pakistani military positions in Neelam Valley yesterday.

Ten terrorists were also killed in the retaliatory action by the Army. Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat told media persons that the action by the Indian forces caused substantial harm to the terror infrastructure across the Line of Control (LoC). He said, more information on terrorist casualty is being obtained. Army chief said the terror camps destroyed by the forces were located in Athmuqam, Kundal Shahi, Jura and one in Leepa Valley.

Gen Rawat said, defence minister Rajnath Singh was briefed about the retaliatory action. Gen Rawat said, of late, the Army had received information that terrorists were coming closer to the camps in the forward areas. He said, in the last one month, repeated infiltration attempts were made from the Gurez, Keran, Machil, Uri sectors and south of Pir Panjal. Gen Rawat said, Pakistani soldiers are resorting to ceasefire violation to provide support to the infiltration bids by terrorists.
