Indian army has hit many terror launch pads inside Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) with pinpoint accuracy. The strikes were conducted with anti-tank missiles in which many Pakistani terrorists have been killed.
The strikes come after Pakistan resorted to continuous ceasefire violations during recent past. The sources said intelligence-based targeted strikes are being conducted by the Indian Army to neutralise mostly Pakistani and foreign terrorists, and the collateral damage has been very negligible in these operations.
“Pakistan has sought to target the peaceful villagers living alongside the Indian side of the LoC in order to send a message to the inhabitants of Kashmiri hinterland that to disobey Pakistani diktats and directives on terrorism will prove lethal,” said a military source.

The Indian Army mounted a major retaliation pounding several Pakistani positions with anti-tank guided missiles and artillery guns in which at least eight Pakistani soldiers were killed and 12 others injured.
“Pakistan Army”s actions to exclusively target civilians are countered by Indian Army”s pinpoint strikes on suspected launchpads inside Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir,” the source said, adding deaths of terrorists in the area are shown as civilian deaths by Pakistan in order to garner sympathy and aid from foreign donors.

The sources said Pakistan has been strongly guarding the location of terrorist training camps following India”s Balakot air strikes last year. Indian war planes pounded a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist training camp deep inside Pakistan on February 26 last year in response to Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF soldiers were killed.
UPDATE: The Indian Army has clarified that no firing or ceasefire violation has taken place after news agency PTI reported government sources as claiming that security forces were carrying out “pinpoint strikes” on suspected terror launchpads inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
