*KARACHI : **Pakistan Army destroys Indian posts, atleast 6 Indian Army soldiers killed and injured.*
India’s provocative posturing continues unabated along the Line of Control (LoC) in Azad Jammu and Kashmir with its border guards violating a truce at will and targeting civilian population.
Ceasefire violations (CFVs) by Indian troops over the past three days have triggered befitting response from Pakistani soldiers sparking off skirmishes and resulting in casualties on both sides, according to the chief military spokesperson.
DG ISPR Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said that Indian troops have repeatedly violated the 2003 ceasefire agreement between the two countries during the last 36 hours.
“Responding to CFVs in Haji Pir Sector, Pakistan Army troops damaged [an] Indian post killing 3 Indian soldiers, including a Subedar,” he wrote in a tweet. Some Indian soldiers were also wounded in the retaliatory fire.
“In Dewa Sector, Naib Subedar Kandero and Sepoy Ehsan of Pakistan Army embraced Shahadat,” he added.
CFVs by Indian troops have increased in frequency and intensity since the Feb 27 air battle between Pakistani and Indian militaries in which two Indian fighter jets were shot down and the pilot of one downed aircraft was captured – only to be released later as a goodwill gesture.
According to stats, there have been more than 1,267 ceasefire violations by Indian troops so far this year in which at least 47 people – mostly civilians – have been martyred and more than 241 injured.
