Indian troops open fire once again across LoC at Bhimber sector


Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control on Tuesday. This marks the fourth time Indian forces have violated the ceasefire along the LoC in two days.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian troops targeted Pakistani positions at Bhimber sectors including Khanjar and Baroh, and resorted to indiscriminate fire.

The shelling continued from 4am to 6am in the morning.

Earlier on Monday, both sides traded fire across the Line of Control (LoC) in the Istikharabad sector. According to the military’s media wing Pakistan Army gave a befitting response to the Indian side.

“Pakistani troops are befittingly responding to Indian unprovoked firing, at Nezapir sector, which started at 1130 hrs,” ISPR said.

Two Pakistan Army soldiers were killed on Thursday as Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Bhimber, Kel and Lipa sectors.

India claimed to have conducted surgical strikes along the LoC. “India’s claims of surgical strikes are baseless,” DG ISPR Asim Bajwa said in a statement. “There has been no surgical strike by India, instead there had been cross border fire initiated and conducted by India.”

The military’s media wing added, “As per rules of engagement same was strongly and befittingly responded by Pakistani troops”.
