TWO CITIZENS MARTYRED IN INDIAN UNPROVOKED FIRING ALONG LINE OF CONTROL


Two citizens were martyred and two others injured as Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) on Saturday.

The military’s media wing, Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), said, Indian forces targeted civilian population in Tattapani and Jandrot sectors along LoC.

Two civilians were martyred and two others, including a woman, injured in the Indian unprovoked firing, ISPR said. The injured have been shifted to a hospital in Kotli, the military’s media wing added.

ISPR further said, Pakistani forces responded befittingly and targeted Indian posts.

Given the prevailing situation, Pakistan’s armed forces are on high alert, it added.

India and Pakistan are amidst their biggest standoff in many years, with the United States and other global powers mediating to de-escalate tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbouring countries.
