Soldier martyred in Indian firing along the LoC
Rawalpindi: A soldier was martyred along the Line of Control after Indian forces opened fire, said a statement issued by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the military’s public relations wing.

According to the ISPR, India fired rockets and mortars in the Battal, Satwal, Khanjar, Nikyal and Jandrot sectors, targeting civilian population and army check posts.

The check post was heavily damaged during the attack.

In response to "the ceasefire violation", the Pakistan Army effectively responded to Indian firing and targeted the posts which had initiated fire.

"During the exchange of fire, Havaldar Manzoor Abbasi embraced martyrdom while four citizens, including two young girls and a woman, got injured," read the statement.

Earlier this month, five Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred and one other sustained wounds in an explosion that took place a few metres from the LoC in Chamb sector of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).
