7 soldiers killed in Indian firing along LoC

Seven Pakistan Army soldiers were killed as Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing at Bhimber sector of the Line of Control (LoC) on Sunday night.

“Seven soldiers embraced shahadat at LoC in Bhimber sector in cross-fire violation by Indian troops late last night,” Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Monday.

“Pakistani troops while responding to Indian unprovoked firing targeted Indian posts effectively,” it added.

India and Pakistan have been involved in a tense diplomatic and verbal spat over the tense situation in occupied Kashmir. More than 100 protesters have lost their lives to the security forces in the valley while dozens blinded by use of pellet guns. The two countries have been at loggerheads after the killing of a populist rebel leader Burhan Wani by the occupied forces.
