Islamabad: Pakistan said India’s claim of a “surgical strike” across the Line of Control (LoC) was an illusion, saying that the incident was “cross-border fire”.
“The notion of surgical strike linked to alleged terrorists’ bases is an illusion being deliberately generated by India to create false effects,” the military said in a statement.
Pakistan soldiers killed as India responds to ceasefire violation with punitive strikes. It was released shortly after DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said India had hit suspected militants preparing to infiltrate into Kashmir.
Pakistan’s military confirmed that two of its soldiers had been killed in the exchange of fire across the Line of Control.
