Reports of airstrike by Indian Army in PoK ‘fake’, clarifies DG of Indian Army

Indian Army Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lieutenant General Paramjit Singh on Thursday clarified in a statement that the Indian Army has not conducted any ‘pinpoint’ airstrike around the Line of Control in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

“Reports of Indian Army’s action in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) across the Line of Control are fake,” Lieutenant General Paramjit Singh said.


The DGMO had to issue a clarification to clear the air as news reports from several media organizations suggested that the Indian Army had carried out precision strikes against terrorists in PoK on November 19 to destroy their terrorist launch pads as retaliation to the constant shelling by Pakistan that had killed four Indian army personnel and four civilians in the Kashmir area in India. It was also suggested that 12 terrorist launch-pads have been destroyed in the Kashmir Valley area in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir which were later discarded after the clarification from the higher authorities.

The story by the media houses was based on analysis of the Ceasefire Violations (CFV) that took place on November 13 and now It is clarified that there has been no firing or CFV in Line of Control on November 19.
