Line Of Control: Three Pakistani Soldiers Martyred In Indian Firing


LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– Unprovoked firing from across the Line of Control (LoC) left three Pakistan Army soldiers martyred at Rakhchikri Sector in Rawalakot, the military’s media wing Tuesday said.

Those martyred have been identified as Subedar Muhammad Riaz, Lance Hawaldar Azizullah and Sepoy Shahid Mansab, Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR) says in its press release.

It said Pakistani forces responded to Indian firing befittingly and there were reports of casualties on the other side of the border as well.

Crossfire on the Line of Control (LoC), which divides the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir, saw a spike when tensions between two nuclear powers peaked in the wake of the Feb 14 incident of Pulwama suicide attack in which more than 40 Indian security personnel were killed.

Earlier, on March 2, two Pakistani soldiers and two civilians were martyred when Indian forces had resorted to unprovoked firing from across the Line of Control (LoC).

ISPR had said in a statement that Indian forces targeted civilian population in Nakyal Sector along LoC.

“Two soldiers and as many civilians were martyred while two others, including a woman, were wounded as a result of cross border firing.”
