6-7 Pak soldiers killed, several injured in retaliatory firing by India along LoC
NEW DELHI/SRINAGAR: India on Friday conducted retaliatory punitive fire assaults against posts, bunkers and fuel dumps across the Line of Control in Kashmir, in which six to seven Pakistani soldiers were reportedly killed and several others injured. Five Indian soldiers and four civilians, including a woman, also lost their lives in the heavy exchange of cross-border firing.
The major escalation in hostilities with Pakistan came amidst the ongoing military confrontation with China in eastern Ladakh, in yet another stark reminder of the two-front collusive threat India faces along its long unresolved borders with the two nuclear-armed neighbours.
India has recorded as many as 4,052 ceasefire violations (CFVs) by Pakistan already this year, smashing all annual records over the last 17 years. India has lost around 20 soldiers and an equal number of civilians, with many more being grievously injured, in the CFVs this year.
Both armies have often used 105mm and 155mm artillery guns, anti-tank guided missiles and heavy mortars in “caliber-escalation” to target each other, as was the case on Friday.
Indian Army officers said Pakistan initiated “unprovoked” CFVs with heavy mortars and other weapons spread across multiple sectors along the 778-km long LoC, including Baramulla, Dawar, Keran, Uri and Naugam, after a major infiltration bid was foiled in the Keran sector of Kupwara district on Friday morning.
“Pakistan deliberately targeted our civilian areas. Our troops retaliated strongly and hit them very hard, causing substantial damage to Pakistan Army's infrastructure across the LoC. Several ammunition and FOL (fuels, oils and lubricants) dumps and multiple terrorists launch pads were damaged in our retaliatory strikes,” said a senior officer, speaking to TOI.

Well, these people won't allow us to live peacefully
Let us all celebrate Diwali at Islamabad. Jai Hind
Congress is crying! Rahul Gandhi is very sad to hear this
All people from peaceful secular religion are also crying
Of course we are sad, 9 Indians also lost their lives.
India should encroach Pak land for every CFV by Pak.
Indian Army should proactively carry on heavy artillery firings on Pakistani Bases regularly till Pakis stop aggression.

Our Indian army has great power to retaliate Pakistan at any time, but due to political pressure it's not possible. There will be some h an rights activists who condemn army when army tries to retaliate. Later our opposition leaders fund those h an rights activists to spread lies across global media that India is declaring war, killing Pakistani people across boarder without any reason.
我们印度军队很强大，可以随时报复巴基斯坦，但由于政治压力，这是不可能的。当军方试图展开报复时，会有一些人 权活动人士谴责军方。反对派领导人资助那些人 权活动人士，在全球媒体上散布谎言，说印度正在宣战，无缘无故跨越国界杀害巴基斯坦人民。
Happy Diwali to Pakistan’s Nakaam army from Indian Army!
Tiger Is Back
I wish we destroy the entire pakistan and capture it soon....
Very good lesson to Pakistan and we should continue to retaliate 10 times on them, whenever they voilate the ceasefire at LOC.
