“There are 250-300 terrorists across the border, present at each launch pad in Pakistan. Our security forces have been successful in thwarting their attempts of infiltration,” Mishra was quoted as saying by a new publication on Sunday (November 15).
Because of the recent ceasefire violations by Pakistan, a lot of harm was inflicted on civilians, including damage to their properties, Mishra further added. “Lot of harm was inflicted on civilians including damage to their properties. Issue of human rights violation should be raised.”

Pakistan, on the other hand, has accused India of violating the ceasefire agreement.
India’s Chargé d’Affaires has been summoned to register Pakistan’s “strong protest” over what the nation has termed as “ceasefire violations by India” along the Line of Control (LoC).
