The Indian Army has foiled another infiltration bid by terrorists from Pakistan who tried to enter the Macchil sector at around 2.30 am earlier today (6 August).

The 5-6 terrorists had infiltrated 500 m into India when they were intercepted by the security forces. In the ensuing gunfight, one soldier was injured and subsequently evacuated from the area.

Infiltration attempts by Pakistan-backed terrorists are on the rise with intel reports of Pakistan having again operationalised the terror camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). The camps had went cold after India’s attack on one such camp in Balakot.

However, reports suggested that Pakistan has again shifted LeT-chief Masood Azhar’s brother to PoK in a bid to restart its terror campaign against India. However, India has bolstered its military presence in the state following the reports and is taking care that infiltrations do not go unchecked.
