Pak violates ceasefire in Naushera sector, Army retaliates

BAT operations are usually the handiwork of the SSG commandos trained for covert and irregular missions across the LoC, in conjunction with terrorists, after careful reconnaissance and study of vulnerable spots and patrolling patterns of Indian troops.

Earlier on Thursday, in the third such attack this year, a team of Pakistani special forces sneaked 600 metres across the LoC into the Poonch sector and killed two Indian troopers and lost one Border Action Team (BAT) member in retaliatory action.

The Pakistani Army breached the truce thrice yesterday by firing small arms and shelling mortars on army posts along the LoC in Rajouri and Poonch sectors, drawing strong retaliation from the Indian side. The ambush, carried out by a suspected Pakistan border action team in the midst of intense mortar and small arms exchanges that raged through the day, targeted a patrol operating near Gurunj Post, close to the village of Khari Karmara.

There have been 20 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the International Border in Jammu region so far in June.
