Four Pakistani civilians martyred, six Indian troops killed in LoC firing: ISPR


RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army on Monday killed at least six Indian soldiers when Indian troops resort to unprovoked firing across Line of Control (LoC), Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

According to ISPR, Indian forces targeted Jandroot, Kerala and Baroha sectors and martyred four and injured 10 civilians on Pakistani side.

The martyred were identified as Altaf, Nazia, Atique and Tassavur, military’s media wing said.

ISPR further said that Pakistan Army responded in a befitting manner to Indian aggression, killing at least six Indian soldiers.

On Saturday, the army had shot down an Indian spy drone in Rakhchakri sector.

Director-General ISPR Lt. Gen. Asim Saleem Bajwa said that Indian quadcopter was shot down at 4:45pm PST by the troops at Aagahi post.

On the same day, Indian forces had martyred four minors on the Pakistani side of the LoC.

For nearly three months now, Indian forces have been violating the ceasefire agreement along the LoC and the Working Boundary. The aggressive posturing and continuing unprovoked fire by India has resulted in martyrdom of a number of Pakistani civilians and military troops.

Pakistan has repeatedly protested against the border violations on the diplomatic level, while the Pakistan Army and Rangers have also been responding to the Indian firing and shelling in a befitting manner.
