LoC ceasefire violations: Pakistan shoots dead Six Indian soldiers in 'befitting response'

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan shot dead six Indian soldiers in a “befitting response” to New Delhi’s ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC), the military’s media wing said.

In its statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the ceasefire violations occurred in the Tatta Pani Sector at the LoC. “Indian fire had martyred 3 civilians including 7 years old boy,” it noted.

The ISPR further said: “Pakistan Army targeted Indian posts. 6 Indian soldiers including an officer killed, many injured 2 bunkers destroyed.”

India’s firing and ceasefire violations have notably increased in frequency, with at least five Pakistanis, including two civilians, martyred by New Delhi’s unprovoked firing at the LoC last week.
