Indian troops engage Pakistani commandos along LOC (vid)

As the showdown between India and Pakistan continues over New Delhi’s decision to strip the restive state of Jammu and Kashmir of its special status, there have been several purported attempts by Pakistani forces to push alleged infiltrators across the Line of Control (LoC).

The Indian Army has shared a video of its action to repulse an attempt by Pakistan’s BAT (Border Action Team) to push purported militants into Indian territory in Kashmir. Army sources said they foiled over 15 such attempts in the month of August alone.

​In the video, Indian troops were seen launching grenades at Pakistani SSG (Special Service Group) commandos using Under Barrel Grenade Launchers.

India’s Foreign Ministry said on Sunday (15 September) that the Pakistani Army had committed a total of 2,050 unprovoked ceasefire violations in 2019 in which 21 Indians lost their lives.
