Jammu: Tet another attempt by terrorists to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan was foiled by the Indian Army on Thursday. "A search operation is now going on in the area", the sources added. A series of continuous fire assaults - classified as punitive fire - have been carried out in the past few weeks. "(Our) action will speak for itself", Chand had said.

In a twitter message, military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor said Indian unethical and unprofessional approach across Line of Control continued terrorising civilians as the van driver embraced shahadat when the Indian forces opened unprovoked fire on the school children van in Battal sector.

The number of terrorists is much more than the number past year indicating a "hot-summer" ahead.

Pakistan Army has issued 35 red-alerts to its forces keeping in mind the firing from India.

Islamabad has been urging New Delhi to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, investigate the incidents of ceasefire violations, instruct Indian forces to respect the ceasefire in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC.

"The Army, with all its commanding officers along the LoC being given adequate freedom of action, is hammering and bleeding the Pak army + to deny it any tactical advantage or moral ascendancy along the border", said a source. "If there is a drop in infiltration we can adhere to the ceasefire".
