The Army, in a global message, has clearly indicated that if Pakistan attempts to push infiltrators across the Line of Control (LoC), strong action will be taken.

There was no immediate response from New Delhi and officials at UNMOGIP's office on the Pakistani side were also not available for comment.

The video which dates May 9 shows the use of rocket launchers, 106 mm recoilless gun, anti tank guided missile and automatic grenade launchers. The Major General said punitive fire assaults are being undertaken across the Line of Control. Narula further said that terrorist activity is likely to increase in the coming months with the melting of snow and opening of passes.

More than 100 terrorists are suspected to be sitting on different locations opposite Indian positions on the LoC waiting for opportunities to sneak into the Indian territory.

"We want peace and tranquillity in the state of J&K".

Army along the Line of Control started repairing the damaged LoC fence as a pre-emptive measure.

The Indian Army on Wednesday busted Pakistani claims about destroying Indian posts and said that the concerned video showed that the blast was from below the structure, ANI reported quoting army sources. Defence minister Arun Jaitley said the Army is taking such "preemptive" and "measured" actions to counter terrorism in the Kashmir Valley.

Indian army had claimed it had fired and damaged Pakistani posts along the LoC. "When will it stop infiltration from Pakistan?"

In response to the recent infiltration bids from the Pakistan side of the Line of Control, the Indian Army struck a Pakistani forward post in Naushera sector.

The Indian army spokesman did not specify when the Pakistani posts were targeted but said it was "recent, very recent".

In the days following the attack, India claimed to have conducted a [cross-border "surgical strike"][5] against "launch pads of terror" in Azad Jammu and Kashmir - a claim Pakistan strongly rejected.

It was another operation from Indian Army and another denial from Pakistan which has become the land for the terrorists. "Our Army is making supreme sacrifice and acting with valour, but where is the Modi Government?"
