Army on Saturday claimed a major infiltration bid was foiled when they gunned down two militants near the Line of Control (LoC) in the frontier district of Kupwara, official sources said.
"An infiltration bid has been foiled in Machhil sector and two terrorists have been killed", defence spokesman Col. Rajesh Kalia said.
He added that "weapons and warlike stores were recovered". Indian Army gave a befitting response against the ceasefire violation following the firing from across the global border had reportedly stopped.
Red Bull, Renault to split after 2018 F1 season
Renault , which now has its own factory team, and Red Bull won four successive drivers' and constructors' titles between 2010-13. Earlier this week, it was reported that McLaren and Honda will be parting ways at the end of the current season of Formula 1.
Troops monitoring the area noticed suspicious movement along the LoC and immediately challenged the intruders. Incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops have increased sharply this year. Every year, these sectors witness occasional heavy gunfights between infiltrating militants and troops. This bid was foiled after more than a month's time when last infiltration was repulsed with fatal casualties on militant side.
In Gurez sector of north Kashmir's Bandipora district, five armed infiltrators were killed during counter infiltration operation in July.
