Pakistan will never compromise on its dignity, honour: Army

Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir unit of BJP today lauded the Army for its "prompt punitive strike" across the Line of Control (LoC) in retaliation against recent ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces.

The latest incident took place days after India's army claimed three Indian soldiers were killed and one injured in Pakistani firing along the highly militarized de facto border between the nuclear-armed rivals.

"Using small arms, automatics and mortars they targeted military and civilian facilities in Degwar".

A military statement said the "unprovoked cease-fire violation" took place Monday in Rawalakot in the Pakistan-controlled part of Kashmir.

After Saturday's shooting, the Indian military had said in a statement that the soldiers' killings "will not go in vain".

On December 24, Pakistani troops had also targeted forward posts and villages in Shahpur sector of Poonch district for almost four hours but there was no report of any casualty.

In an unusual move, Pakistan Army released a (external link) in solidarity with the people of Kashmir, hours ahead of Kashmir Day which is observed annually in the country on February 5.

The chief military spokesman on Thursday, while addressing a press briefing on the national and regional security situation, said it is time Afghanistan and the USA do more for Pakistan.

More news: Q2 Weather: Snow. Then more snow. Then really cold

India and Pakistan have a long history of bitter relations over the Himalayan territory, which both claim in its entirety.

They have fought two of their three wars over the region since they gained independence from British colonial rule in 1947.

Reacting to the "inhuman behaviour" meted out to the mother and wife of former Navy officer Jadhav in Pakistan, the BJP leader said the authorities there failed to adhere to the mutually agreed protocols prior to the meeting and deliberately violated them to harass the visitors.

DG ISPR commented on RAW spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with the family expressing that India would never appreciate Pakistan for the humanitarian gesture it extended.

A Pakistani military tribunal found Jadhav guilty of espionage and sabotage and sentenced him to death, but India obtained an order from the International Court of Justice to halt the execution. They spoke through an intercom for almost 40 minutes.

Discussing measures taken by Pakistan to stop cross-border infiltration of terrorists, Ghafoor said: "We have started the construction of forts and posts on the Afghan border for effective border management-what more does the USA and Afghanistan want from us?"

Also on Tuesday, Indian troops killed a rebel commander in a gunfight in southern Samboora village in Indian-held Kashmir, police said. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
