300 militants in Pakistan ready to enter India: Army

300 militants in Pakistan ready to enter India: Army

S.P. Vaid, the top police official in the disputed region, said one soldier was also killed in the clash. The rabble-rousing resorted to by the two sides has further deteriorated their relations, which were affected after the attack on the Indian military base in Uri in which seventeen army men were killed in 2016.

With this, the death toll in the terror attack on the army camp that began February 10 has risen to seven, including six soldiers and a civilian.

New Delhi blamed the attack on Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), a Pakistan-based militia that they say has the support of Islamabad. Backed fully by the Pakistani people our forces are vigilant on land, sea and air, he added.

The Spokesperson said that the now familiar Indian tendency of apportioning blame to Pakistan, without a shred of evidence, is regrettable.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has also said "Pakistan will pay" for the attack by terrorists from across the border on the Army camp in Jammu. Though the Indian efforts have proved to be futile but the irresponsible statements and increased ceasefire violations on the Line of Control and the Working Boundary by the Indian troops pose grave threat to regional peace and security.

In a blunt assessment, Coats noted: "Pakistan's perception of its eroding position relative to India, reinforced by endemic economic weakness and domestic security issues, nearly certainly will exacerbate long-held fears of isolation and drive Islamabad's pursuit of actions that run counter to U.S. goals for the region".

Indian officials had told the media that the fierce gunfight broke out early Saturday morning after gunmen indiscriminately opened fire and entered a highly fortified military camp at Sunjawan in Jammu, the winter capital of Indian-controlled Kashmir. "Pakistan will pay for this misadventure".

Hardliner ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) coalition partner and Indian-held Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said bilateral talks with Pakistan were vital.

Her visit came as another encounter between security forces and terrorists began to unfold in Srinagar's Karan Nagar area.

The two attackers tried to barge into the CRPF headquarters, but personnel guarding the gates of the heavily fortified compound foiled the attempt.

"A search operation is now going on in the area", the sources added.
