“Pakistan Army troops responded effectively to Indian firing,” tweeted the ISPR.
Pakistan has condemned the latest unprovoked ceasefire violations by Indian forces along the Line of Control.
Tensions have been high between the two countries over the past few weeks as India continues to violate the ceasefire agreement over the LoC and injured many innocent civilians.
Last month, a 13-year-old girl was martyrdom as Indian troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC).
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Indian troops had initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation in Hajipir and Bedori sectors along the LoC, targeting the civilian population.
“Due to indiscriminate firing of Indian troops in Mensar village, Bedori sector, a 13-year-old girl Iqra Shabbir embraced shahadat, while her mother and a 12-year-old boy sustained serious injuries,” the ISPR had said.
