SRINAGAR: Terror outfits backed by the Pakistan Army, along the LoC in PoK and pads purportedly destroyed by the Indian Army in the surgical strikes has been resurrected according to reports. Pakistan Army, have set up eight new launch pads in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir and might be used by as many as 250 terrorists to cross-over into the Indian border.
Among the eight new launch pads are those in Lipa Valley, one of the two strategic locations which was destroyed by the the Indian Army during its surgical strikes in September 2016. Last week, after agreeing to foreign minister-level talks on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, India pulled out less than 24-hours later citing Pakistan-abetted terror in the Valley.
Since Imran Khan took over as the Prime Minister of Pakistan in August, the number of operational launch pads has increased to 27. There has been a significant rise in terrorism in the valley since then.
