New Delhi (Sputnik): Last week, five Indian army soldiers died and five Pakistani militants were killed following an exchange of fire in Jammu and Kashmir's border area. After the gunfight, Indian authorities suspended internet services in the area.

The Indian Army said on Friday that it had retaliated to Pakistan's ceasefire violation at the Line of Control in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir, targeting terrorist launch pads and ammunition depots and causing heavy damage to the enemy side.

The Line of Control exists as the de-facto border between Indian and Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir.

"At least one terror launch pad, among other targets, was apparently "completely destroyed" in the firing. There are reports that heavy damage has been caused on the other side (Pakistan). There was no casualty on our side," he said.

The army officers also shared a video shot from a drone as the Indian army precision targets Pakistani terror launch pads.

Kashmir police also claimed that Pakistan had also violated the ceasefire in Baramulla district.

Ever since the COVID-19 outbreak took place, ceasefire violations by Pakistan across the border have fallen. But over the last two weeks, there have been several instances of cross border firing.
