New Delhi: Three soldiers of Pakistan Army were killed and one injured on Monday after Indian Forces retaliated to unprovoked firing from across the border.
The information was confirmed in a official statement released by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) to the media in the neighbouring country. Pakistani media reported that three Pakistani soldiers and one soldier was injured in unprovoked incident of firing at Rakhchikri sector of the Line of Control.
Indian troops initiated “unprovoked” firing at the Rawalkot sector of the Line of Control — a de facto border which divides the Himalayan valley between the two neighbors, said the Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR), the Pakistan army’s media wing, in a statement.
The ISPR claims that one Pakistani soldier has also suffered in the unprovoked incident of firing by the Indian troops. One Army Major and three soldiers were martyred while one was injured in an incident of ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops on Saturday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Keri (120 Infantry Brigade) Battalion area along the Line of Control.
According to officials, Pakistan has violated ceasefire along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir 771 times till December 10, and 110 times along the IB till November-end this year.
