A soldier was killed as Pakistani troops opened fire at an Army patrol along the Line of Control in Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir today.
As per reports, the injured jawans have been provided with the medical assistance and the India army is giving a befitting reply to the ceasefire violation.
An Indian soldier was killed and three others were wounded in a cross-border fire in disputed Kashmir region Wednesday. Earlier on July 12, two army men were killed in sniper firing by Pakistani troops in the same area.
He said the Army was “wary of retaliation” from Pakistan after the surgical strikes “but the moment Pakistan refused to acknowledge the strike, we knew we had won the moral battle”. “Pak Army relies on their team of snipers to target Indian positions and in the last one year, several Indian troopers have lost their lives in sniper shots”, they revealed. “Border Security Force (BSF) troops retaliated effectively”, police sources had said.
Pakistani troops had earlier violated ceasefire on the global border in the Jammu district consecutively for four days.
According to Indian officials, over 300 incidents of cease-fire violations were recorded along the LoC this year.
