PAKISTAN – Sources said this is a regular tactic used by Pakistan-led terrorist groups to sneak terrorists into Indian side. The fire broke out in Poonch’s Digwar Sector.
In a bid to aid the infiltration of terrorists, a forest fire was triggered by Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Tuesday. The blaze has been reported in the Digwar sector of Poonch.
According to sources, this is a regular tactic used by terror organisations to sneak terrorists into the Indian side. Reportedly, following the fire, some explosions were also heard.
A similar fire was reported in the Balnoi forest in the Mendhar sector from across the LoC which spread to the Indian side in October 2020. The fire had triggered several land mine explosions, which were planted by the Indian Army to prevent the infiltration of terrorists from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
