India claims to have destroyed terror launch pads in Pakistan, Islamabad rejects

India Pakistan border

New Delhi/Islamabad, Oct 21: India and Pakistan have blamed each other for shelling across the line of control, the de facto border that divides the disputed region of Kashmir.

Without showing evidence , India claimed on Sunday that Army launched a major strike against terrorist training camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, killing 6-10 terrorists and an equal number of Pakistani troops besides decimating at least three launch pads.

Army chief General Bipin Rawat said that three terror camps have been destroyed by Indian Army in retaliation to unprovoked ceasefire violation from the Pakistani side at Tangadhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

Both sides claim they retaliated only after the other violated a ceasefire, allegedly killing civilians and soldiers on both sides.

In February, India launched air strikes against militants in Pakistani territory in response to a suicide attack in Kashmir which killed 40 Indian soldiers. The Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) group said it had carried out that attack.
