Sources have reported that the Indian Army is foiling Pakistan Army’s BAT actions almost every day along the Line of Control (LoC) and are also taking pre-emptive actions against the Pakistani positions trying to help terrorists in their infiltration attempts.
In an attempt to thwart the Pakistani actions, the Indian Army posts on the LoC are taking action against any movement from Pakistan’s side towards the fence on the LoC, sources said.
“If you look at the intelligence inputs, every day there are reports about attempts by Pakistan Army border action teams (BAT) to target our posts all along the LoC. We are taking all possible steps to thwart their actions,” top Army sources told ANI.
“513 ceasefire violations by Pakistan have taken place along the Line of Control, in the last one and a half month. Pakistan used heavy weaponry over 100 times during these violations. Whenever Pakistan carries out such violations, we also retaliate effectively. As per our sources, Pakistan Army has suffered five to six times more casualties than the casualties on the Indian side,” said Lt Gen Paramjit Singh in Rajouri, a week ago.
The BAT teams of the Pakistan Army include both regular Army personnel and terrorists from groups such as Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and are tasked to carry out surprise hits on Indian positions along the LoC.
BAT teams include commandos from the Pakistan Army and terrorists (who can be disowned when caught). Members receive training from both Pakistan’s Army and its Air Force.
