    Strong reply by Indian Army : five Pakistani Posts Destroyed


    Sending a strong message to Pakistan over repeated ceasefire violations and Border Action Team (BAT) attacks, a top Army commander today warned it was making a "serious mistake" and said a befitting reply would be given with "full force" at the time and place of its choice.


    "You (Pakistan) are making a serious mistake (with regard to ceasefire violations and BAT attacks), do not do it," General Officer Commanding (GOC) 25 Infantry Div, Major General V P Singh told reporters in Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir.

    India has blamed BAT, which is a mix of Pakistani special forces personnel and terrorists, for the brutal killing of its two soldiers in January, one of whom was beheaded, and killing of its five personnel along the LoC in Poonch sector.

    "what you are putting across, it is not going to affect, deter us or weaken our resolve," Gen Singh said.

    He further said that the Army is here to respond to each and every act of Pakistan in whichever way it feels so.

    ding the Army's strategy in the wake of the BAT attacks engineered by Pakistan, Gen Singh said "as far as BAT action is concerned, we are absolutely aware what kind of response it is going to get, that response will be delivered".

    Gen Singh said the Defence Minister and the Chief of Army Staff have given his command clear directions that violation of ceasefire or any other act of infiltration from across LoC will be met resolutely with power and full force.

    "As far as I am concerned, those directions are with me - we are responding and retaliating to the situation as per the requirements with full force", Gen Singh said.

    He further said that Army Chief had also made it clear that Army is free to reply and respond to the BAT attacks as per opportunity and strategy.

    "As per opportunity and situation, what is to be done -- everybody knows it and reply accordingly will be given."

    At another media briefing at Bhimbher Gali in Poonch sector along LoC, Brigade Commander, 120 Infantry Brigade, Brig A Sengupta said Army has inputs about Pakistan trying to engineer more BAT attacks along the border

    The situation at the Line of Control or LoC in Jammu and Kashmir continues to remain tense with another ceasefire violation by Pakistan. The Pakistani troops opened fire at the Indian posts along the LoC in Mendhar area with mortars drawing retaliation from India.

    The Indian Army foiled another infiltration bid by the terrorists in Keran sector in Kupwara districts in Kashmir along the LoC on Saturday night. The Indian troops retaliated to firing after the troops on the Pakistani side opened fire last night.

    The There have been 19 ceasefire violations in one week along the LoC. The Indian Army has said that the last two months have seen most ceasefire violations in months.

    Defence spokesman SN Acharya said the Pakistani troops targeted the Indian forward areas with small arms fire at Ceasefire violation by Pak troops continues at Line of Control, infiltration bid foiled in Kupwara.

    On Friday night, Pakistani troops had fired on forward Indian posts along the LoC in Mendhar and Hamirpur areas of Poonch district drawing retaliation from India.

    A senior Army official said Pakistani troops are not just targetting Indian posts, but also the villages along the Line of Control.

    On Thursday, Pakistan fired across the Line of Control in the Kargil and Drass sectors of Jammu and Kashmir for the first time in the 14 years since the Kargil war of 1999.

    The last two weeks have seen what the Indian Army has described as the biggest ceasefire violation in recent months. About 28 militants have also been killed while trying to infiltrate into India under the cover of fire by the Pakistani troops in the last two months.

    Pakistan has been known to favour the strategy of pushing through as many militants as possible into India before the mountain passes of the Himalayas close with the onset of winters. They use the skirmishes at the border as cover for the infiltration attempts.

    The attacks also mark a complete breakdown of ceasefire with Pakistan, a month before Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif are expected to meet in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

    Sir that is what even I had stated. You can see the use of 30mm guns in attacking those bunkers in direct fire role.

    Was that 40 mm bofors l40/60 in that footage?

    And the fire against the bunker was from 84mm RCL or older ATGMs?


    Also the intercepts proves that Pakistan army goes and hides in civilian area when shelled. This time they wanted to hide in a Mosque and would claim Indian army shelled civilian targets. Bloody cowards.

    What is this "rocket launcher" that I keep hearing about? Is it the BM-21 Grad? Or is it just a Carl-Gustav? If it is the latter, then it isn't really a rocket launcher.

    unconfirmed

    sir i don't favor wars but there would always be an understanding between the Indian and Pakistani troops on the border. that is, "if even one Indian troops lose his life on the border, then i must result is scoring at least one pakistani military man on the same border. and if you lose 30 this year then at least 30 you gotto score on the Pakistani side to always help them understand that, whenever they kill one Indian military personal, it will then result is a certain fate of one of their own team." :thumb:

    the number must always be balanced, and it must always be confirmed to the Pakistani side, whenever they try for any coward attack on the Indian military :thumb:

    Well, there is no understanding as such since when the situation is hostile, one should retaliate.

    However, we are constrained by the national political ethos as is current and so we are most hesitant to act.

    The example of Govt overrides is so evident by the example where even a truthful statement that Pakistani Army personnel killed Indian soldiers, were changed on Govt orders since the Def Min had made a blooper and his prestige was more important than the truth! And that incompetent Khurshed did backflips and hooplas justifying the same.
