Army foils infiltration bid by terrorists in Poonch

FO summoned J.P. Singh to protest against deliberate targeting of van carrying school children

"Troops fired and the group of intruding terrorists was forced to withdraw back into the Pakistani side".

Following the incident, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh to condemn the constant ceasefire violations by the Indian forces along the Line of Control.

Indian soldiers targeted a school van along the Line of Control (LoC) and martyred its driver in the Battal sector on Thursday, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The assessment is there are around 400 terrorists in and around "launch pads" along the LoC, both south and north of the Pir Panjal range, looking for an opportune time to sneak into J&K. "This number was 138 casualties in 2017, with 156 people getting injured", they said.

Terming it a violation of Geneva Convention and ceasefire understanding, the military spokesman also shared a video in which Indian terror is described by a girl student inside school van targetted today in Battal Sector.
