Pakistan Army destroys Indian Army post at LoC, kills two Indian soldiers
RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army has destroyed the Indian Army post at LoC which fired at the civilians in Pakistan. Atleast two Indian soldiers have been killed in retaliatory attack.
Earlier An eight-year-old boy Ayan was killed in Indian firing along the Line of Control, said the Inter-Services Public Relations statement on Monday.
The eight-year-old boy belonged to Jajotvillage, said the ISPR.
Pakistan army’s media cell denounced Indian brutality, condemning the use of pellet guns in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said that the blatant targeting of innocent unarmed civilians across the LoC ‘exposes the true Indian face’.
Government forces in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) have been using pellet guns since 2010 as a "non-lethal" weapon following widescale civilian protests against Indian rule.
After a spate of gruesome injuries last year that earned the title "epidemic of dead eyes", Amnesty and other rights groups called for a complete ban on the use of the shotguns.
A single cartridge fired releases at least 500 high-speed metal pellets. These lodge in any available body part and are difficult to remove.
