Pak violates truce 513 times on LoC since Operation Balakote
no sniping incident reported in past 45 days, morale of troops very high and resolve rock solid, people in safe hands’: Gen Paramjit

Jammu, April 14, (Scoop News)-As many as 513 ceasefire violations by Pakistan have taken place along the Line of Control (LoC) since Operation Balakote carried out by the Indian Air Force (IAF) on February 27.

“Pakistan army has suffered five to six times more casualties than the Indian army in the retaliatory action,” Lieutenant General Paramjit Singh, General officer Commanding (GOC). 16th Corps told media persons on Saturday.

In reply to a question about the casualties suffered by Pakistan in the retaliatory action, the Corps Commander said unlike Indian Army, Pakistan does not announce the number of its casualties.

“However, as per our inputs, the Pakistan army suffered five to six times more casualties than the casualties on our side,” he added.

Ten people including four security men were martyred and about 45 others, mostly civilians, were injured in the twin border districts since India carried out Operation Balakote over 45 days ago.

“Surprisingly, there was no sniping incident from February 27 till date,” Gen Singh said.

He said the Pakistan army used heavy weaponry like mortars and artillery guns in over one hundred times during these violations and targeted civilian area but was given befitting response by the Indian Army.

Gen Singh, who has jurisdiction over twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch and which shared LoC with Pakistan, said the enemy forces are being given a befitting response by Indian troops at all places on the border in both the border districts.

“Our troops are equipped with every kind of weaponry and ammunition and their determination, dedication and commitment is unparalleled,” he added.

Responding to another question, Gen Singh said that our message to Pakistan is given everyday whenever some diabolical activity takes place on the LoC.

On the sniping incidents from across the LoC, GOC 16th Corps said it had come to a naught over past several months, particularly after Operation Balakote.

“Surprisingly, there was no sniping incident after the strike,” Gen Singh asserted.

He said the morale of the troops is very high and as long as they are deployed on the border, the people of the country are secure and in the safe hands.

Gen Singh said the resolve of our troops is ‘rock solid’ and are always ready to for any challenge and as long as they are there defend the country, the people needed not to worry....
