No surgical strike this time, India starts heavy offensive by targeting Pakistani LoC posts with mortar
The Indian Army today carried out heavy offensive using mortar fire to target Pakistani posts along the Line of Control (LoC) to avenge the death of Indian rifleman Prabhu Singh who was brutally beheaded on Tuesday at Macchil by Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT).

While Pakistan still continues to indulge in ceasefire violations, the Indian Army today attacked Pakistani posts in Poonch, Rajouri, Kel and Macchil sectors. As per ANI reports, Pakistan today committed ceasefire violations in Bhimber Gali, Krishna Ghati and Nowshera sectors of J&K.

Yesterday, in a barbaric act which was a gross violation of Geneva Convention, terrorists backed by the Pakistani Army killed two Indian soldiers and beheaded one. The Army said yesterday, "Retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act of mutilating a soldier's body."

The Indian Army had retaliated by destroying four Pakistan Army posts with massive fire power after an Indian soldier was beheaded on October 28 in a similar Border Action Team (BAT) operation like yesterday's.

Yesterday morning, three Indian soldiers of the 57 Rashtriya Rifles who were on a counter-infiltration patrol, were ambushed by terrorists near the LoC in a thickly forested, mountainous area in the Macchil sector.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar yesterday tweeted, "Condemn the cowardly and brutal killing of our soldiers, and mutilation of one of them. Salute these brave martyrs for their supreme sacrifice."

The Indian Army has lately turned more aggressive after the October 28 beheading of soldier and is now using heavy firepower and high-caliber weapons like artillery guns, 120mm mortars and anti-tank guided missiles for targeting Pakistani Army and have managed to flatten out some of their forward posts and bunkers.
