Pakistan Army Claims 7 of its Soldier’s Killed in Cross-Border Firing at LOC




Pakistan army on Monday claimed that seven of its soldiers were killed by Indian firing across the Line of Control (LoC) late last night.

Pakistan Media, quoting Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said that seven soldiers were killed at the LoC in the Bhimber sector in cross-fire “LoC violation” by Indian troops late last night.

Border skirmishes intensified after suspected militants attacked a military base in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri, killing 19 Indian soldiers on September 18.

India claimed to have carried out a “surgical strike” after the attack across the Line of Control. Pakistan has denied the claim.

India shares 230 km of International Border and 740 km of LoC with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir.

The boundary, manned by the paramilitary BSF runs through Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts, and the LoC, which is not an internationally-accepted frontier, cuts across other regions of the state.
