    Published on August 4, 2019

    Army has foiled an attack by Pakistan’s Border Action Team (BAT) on a forward post along the Line of Control (LoC) in Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir. Defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said in Srinagar last night that five to seven Pakistani soldiers and terrorists were killed in the incident.

    The BAT generally comprises special forces personnel of the Pakistani Army and terrorists. Defence spokesperson said, Pakistan has made a number of attempts during the past two days to disturb peace in the Kashmir Valley and to target Amarnath Yatra. He said, four hardcore Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists were also killed in two operations in the state.

    He said,a cache of sniper rifle, IED and mine with Pakistan markings were recovered, which clearly indicates Islamabad’s complicity in terror activities.

    Defence spokesperson said that security forces will continue to respond to all nefarious activities along the LoC and hinterland.
