    28 militants killed by Indian Army on LoC in nearly 2 months

    SRINAGAR: Army said on Friday it has killed 28 militants on the Line of Control and in the hinterland in Kashmir valley since the June 24 Hyderpora attack and recovered huge cache of arms and ammunition.

    "Since the Hyderpora attack of June 24, there have been a series of successful operations both on LoC and in the hinterland area. We have killed 28 terrorists in this period, out of which 18 were eliminated on the LoC and 10 in the hinterland," GOC of Srinagar-based 15 Corps Lt Gen Gurmeet Singh told reporters here.

    He said eight of the slain terrorists were those who were injured and crossed back but died immediately on the other side of the LoC. "We have inputs related to their deaths in those areas," he said.

    Singh's statement came against the backdrop of incessant firing between Pakistani and Indian troops in Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir.

    The valley-based top Army commander said the success in the operations has been a result of effective counter infiltration grid and integrated intelligence created by different intelligence wings operating in Kashmir.

    Singh said there have not been "significant" ceasefire violations from across the border in the Valley, but attempts to infiltrate "are going to be there" in the coming time.

    "In the Kashmir valley, there has been no significant ceasefire violation, but attempts to infiltrate are there.

    "Also, I like to highlight their infrastructure and apparatus close to the launchpad and their activities indicate that they are going to attempt infiltration in the coming time," he said.

    Gunfire shatters Kargil, Drass silence after 14 years; 28 terrorists killed in 2 months at LOC

    Poonch, Jammu: For the first time since the Kargil war of 1999, Pakistani forces fired across the Line of Control in the Kargil and Drass sectors yesterday. Sources say this indicates Pakistan's attempt to 'reactivate' the entire Line of Control with crossfire. Against the backdrop of incessant firing between Pakistani and Indian troops at the Poonch district, the Indian Army today said 28 terrorists had been killed in the past 2 months while trying to cross over to India.

    1. Pakistani forces fired across the Line of Control in the Kargil and Drass sectors on Thursday, 14 years after the Kargil conflict of 1999. Top Defence sources see this as a major indication that Pakistan wants to widen the conflict.

    2. There have been 17 ceasefire violations at the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, mostly in the Poonch and Mendhar sectors, since the killing of five Indian soldiers in a Pakistani ambush on August 6.

    3. In the past 48 hours, India has retaliated with massive firepower including hundreds of rounds of mortars, rocket launchers and heavy machine guns.

    4. India fought back strongly after three Indian soldiers and some civilians were injured in indiscriminate Pakistani firing at the Balakote sector in Poonch. Army sources said they wanted to convey to Pakistan India's intention to protect its borders "in no uncertain terms."

    5. The army claims in the last two months, 28 terrorists have been killed while they were trying to cross over to India. A huge cache of arms including over a dozen AK 47 rifles, grenades and pistols were found on them.

    6. Army operations revealed that older militants are being pushed into the Valley in a bid to revive militancy after a dip in the past two years. Syed Kasim Shah, one of the militants killed on Wednesday at the Kupwara district, had an identity card that said he was born in 1958. (read)

    7. In the past fortnight, 15 militants have been killed while the army battled increased attacks from Pakistan, in what was seen as the biggest threat to the decade-old ceasefire in recent times.

    8. Yesterday, as India celebrated its Independence Day, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sent Pakistan a stern message, saying it must prevent use of its territory for any anti-India activity for any improvement in ties.

    9. President Pranab Mukherjee also said India's patience had limits and all steps necessary to ensure internal security and protect the territorial integrity of the nation would be taken. (read President's Independence Day address)

    10. Defence Ministry sources say that they expect Pakistan's Army to step up hostilities at the border with general elections in India just months away.

    Because first we do not have a leader capable of steering India to Victory MMS inspite being a Singh does not have the balls, secondly its homo wardrums by armed forces we are still far from being mean and capable fighting force. So many gaps in our defence capabilities.

    I believe 30 minutes would be an over-statement unless we are talking nuke, which would have enormous repercussions.

    We have to carry out a strong insurgent operation and cross the LoC and take down the post and some of the officers of pakistan or we can make use of BRAHMOS batteries to take out the pakistan post guarding the border. Something strong must be done to teach pakistan strong lesson so that they will not dare to repeat this again until pakistan exists.......

    WE HAVE TO SOMETHING TO TEACH pakistan A STRONG LESSON AND SEND A VERY STRONG MESSAGE.....
