The Indian Army’s strong response to the continuing ceasefire violations by Pakistani soldiers along the Line of Control was the top story on all channels on Thursday. Five Pakistani soldiers were killed in the action in Naushera Sector of Rajouri and Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch. The Pakistani troops usually fire to divert attention of Indian soldiers so that terrorists can sneak in. But the terrorists were caught this time and a huge amount of ammunition recovered from them.
