“Indian bunkers were also destroyed in the firing,” the ISPR claimed.
On Thursday earlier this week, two individuals were killed and six others injured when Indian troops resorted to “unprovoked firing along the Line of Control” (LoC), Pakistan Today reported.
Incidents of cross-border firing have become a norm since the last months of 2016 as tensions simmer between Pakistan and India over the Kashmir issue.
Exchanges of fire have been reported sporadically since the new-year began.
