Pakistani Soldiers martyred in Indian Cross Border firing, PM Khaqan condemns

According to the FO India committed 70 LoC violations in 12 days and 1,900 in 2017

The information of 4 Pakistani army soldiers being killed by Indian forces was later confirmed by the Pakistani army.

India has also been effectively retaliating to Pakistani firing and even crossed the LoC to punish Pakistani troops on several occasions as part of tactical operations.

The army's media wing said that the troops were busy with maintenance of a communication line when they were "fired upon and hit by [a] heavy mortar round".

The statement comes a day Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat claimed India is ready to call Pakistan's "nuclear bluff".

India frequently accuses Pakistan of sending fighters across the Line of Control to launch attacks on its soldiers in Kashmir, which has been divided between the two nuclear-armed neighbors since partition in 1947.

Since beginning of previous year, the army pursued an aggressive anti-terror policy in Jammu and Kashmir and, at the same time, forcefully responded to all ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control with a tit-for-tat approach.

The stark threat came after General Rawat suggested he was willing to carry out a military operation that could start World War 3. Instead of accepting the death of 7 of its soldiers, Pakistan said its troops returned fire, reportedly killing three Indian soldiers.

Pakistan Army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor warned India that all its misadventures will be reciprocated. The Army chief said terrorism has been limited in the Eastern front.

"We will call their bluff".

Stating that the Army would not allow anti-India activities to succeed in Jammu and Kahsmir, Gen. Rawat cautioned Pakistan against supporting terror groups and abetting infiltration.

"We will call the (nuclear) bluff of Pakistan".

"We're using our might to teach them a lesson", he said.

About modernisation, he said the Army was looking towards futuristic weapon systems, which includes devices with night vision, upgraded combat vehicles for the mechanised columns, long range guns and anti-aircraft guns, new helicopters for Army Aviation, and better electronic warfare and Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems. It said the Indian forces committed 70 ceasefire violations during the last 12 days in which a man was martyred and five others injured.
