Relocating terror launch pads


During the past few days, there have been clear signs that the militants, who were camping at launch pads close to the LoC in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), were now retreating behind after retaliatory actions undertaken by the troops from this side amid reports that the troops could take more such "pro-active measures" to prevent infiltrations into Jammu and Kashmir this summer. Pakistan army has started relocating terror launch pads and shifting trained militants, who had been moved to forward areas for infiltration into the Indian territory through the Line of Control (LoC), at least two to three kilometers behind the LoC following massive retaliatory action undertaken by the Indian troops in Nowshera sector few days back, which destroyed several Pakistani posts and bunkers and led to casualties of enemy troops and militants, who were camping there awaiting an opportunity to infiltrate into this side. Pakistan's official statements of its Air Force chief flying over Siachen and a distorted video showing destruction of a bunker on the LoC notwithstanding, the enemy troops were clearly and visibly shaken by the Indian Army's retaliatory actions and have started relocating the terror launch pads and were shifting militants, who were stationed at these pads, way behind the LoC fearing more aggressive counter-terrorism operation by India on the LoC.
There had been massive movement of militants on Pakistan side of the LoC and troops had been put on very high alert in anticipation of intrusion bid by the militants. In fact, four infiltrators were eliminated by the Army in Nowgam sector of Kashmir few days back. In many forward areas, the infiltrators have diminished during last couple of days from the launch pads and were reported to have been taken back about two to three kilometers inside the Pakistani territory to save them from any further punitive action by the Indian troops.
In one of the retaliatory actions by the Indian Army in Nowshera sector, the video footage of which was released yesterday, Pakistani troops were reported to have suffered heavy losses. Not only its jawans, but at least four to six militants, who had been stationed in Pakistan army's forward posts for facilitating their infiltration attempts on the LoC, were eliminated in the retaliatory fire.
