New Delhi: In a major development, the Indian Army on Sunday launched an attack on terrorist camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) opposite the Tangdhar sector on Sunday. Heavy damage and casualty have been reported on the Pakistan side following the attack by the Indian Army. According to reports, terror launch pads and posts were targeted by the Indian Army in Neelum Ghat of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. At least four terrorist launching pads, four to five Pakistani Army soldiers and several Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists were also killed in the attack carried out by the Indian Army in PoK, said a report.
