Pakistan increasing attempts to push terrorists in Kashmir: Arun Jaitley

04 Août, 2017, 19:18 | Author: Marc Bacque
  • The government said 2017 has seen a sharp increase in ceasefire violations at the LoC by Pakistan

He added that there were 228 ceasefire violations along the LoC past year, and 221 ceasefire violations along the IB under the BSF. In 2016, as per the information disclosed by Jaitley, eight Army jawans were killed in the ceasefire violations. The minister did not share the casualty figures for 2017.

Pakistan has increased attempts to push terrorists into Jammu and Kashmir through the border but there are a high number of casualties on their side, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said on Friday.

"Appropriate retaliation to the ceasefire violations and other tactical incidents by Pakistan Army, as required, is carried out by Indian Army, he said while responding to quarries by MPs".

In reply to another question, Jaitley said the government has enhanced special allowances given to defence personnel serving in hard areas like Siachen.

The Indian Army previous year had also conducted surgical strikes along the LoC to eliminate the terrorists and break down the infiltration attempts.

"All the forward posts are adequately strengthened to withstand enemy fire. Besides, there are well-established Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to safeguard against enemy fire to minimize own casualties", Jaitley said.

He said that India is enhancing the use of technology and arrangements of radars, sensors and other equipment needed are increasing.
