A video of the Army's retaliation against Pakistan's ceasefire violation is going viral on social media.

India accuses Pakistan of supporting and training the groups operating in the territory, while the latter country describes them as non-governmental groups.

As many as 1,142 terror incidents were reported in Jammu and Kashmir between 2012 and 2016 in which 236 security personnel and 90 civilians were killed, the RTI said. The report further says that Indian troops responded and "completely decimated Pakistani bunkers across the border". The Indian Army has said that it would avenge the mutilation of two Indian soldiers at the time and place of our choosing. TV channels, while playing the clip, said the video related to a counter-offensive by the Indian Army, targeting the Pakistani border posts a week after two Indian soldiers were beheaded there. In the video, troops are seen first firing Konkurs ATGMs and then following it up with some shells from "infantry tanks" (tanks decommissioned from the armoured corps but used by infantry for firepower in such situations) to completely destroy Pakistani bunkers.

The San Pablito market had been rocked by two explosions in the past: in September 2005 and again the following year. Army troops and government officials cordoned off the blast site as ambulances rush in to collect the wounded.

The video could have been shot just a few days ahead of the beheading of two Indian jawans by Pakitani security forces.

On Thursday, Army Chief Gen. Bipin Rawat, skirting a query, had cryptically said: "We don't talk about future plans beforehand".

While people have hailed the Indian Army and said that the move is the flawless answer to Pakistan, Army Sources are believed to have said that the video was shot in April.
