Pakistan violated ceasefire along LoC in Jammu and Kashmir 513 times since IAF strikes in Balakot: Indian Army


April  14, 2019

Rajouri: As many as 513 ceasefire violations by Pakistan have taken place along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir after the Indian Air Force’s air strike on terror launch pads in Pakistan, the Indian Army said on Saturday. The air strike by India came two weeks after the 14 February Pulwama terror attack, in which 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives.

 

The army said Pakistan also used heavy weaponry like mortars and artillery guns over 100 times during the said time period. “513 ceasefire violations by Pakistan have taken place along the Line of Control, in the last one and a half month. Pakistan used heavy weaponry over 100 times during these violations,” GOC16 Corps, Lieutenant General Paramjit Singh told reporters.

“Whenever Pakistan carries out such violations, we also retaliate effectively. As per our sources, Pakistan Army has suffered five to six times more casualties than the casualties on the Indian side,” Singh added.


On 26 February, IAF fighter jets targetted terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad’s advance training camp in Pakistan’s Balakot. Islamabad retaliated by attempting to target Indian military installations the next day. However, the IAF thwarted its attempted.

India, after the aerial strikes, had said that it killed a large number of terrorists. However, Pakistan said India’s claim was “reckless” while stating that it will respond “at the time and place of its choosing.”
