Cease-fire violation by Pakistan is not a new thing. They are quite habitual but this is quite extreme. They violated it 513 times since IAF struck terrorists launch pads in Pakistan. The Pakistan army has also used heavy weaponry like Mortars and Artillery Guns in over 100 of their missions.
“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.
India retaliated the 14 February Pulwama terror attack, in which 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives through Air Strike by IAF 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.
