An attempt by a group of Pakistani soldiers and terrorists to attack an army border post along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Keran sector has been foiled by security forces, the Indian Army said on Saturday. Four of them were eliminated by security forces that intercepted this group.
The group of attackers is believed to be part of Pakistan’s Border Action Team, or BAT. This one was a mixed group of Pakistan army’s elite special services group that form its core with support from terrorists from groups such as the Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Such teams carry out hit jobs near the border before heading back to the Pakistan side of the border, sometimes under the cover of firing from Pakistani posts.
