RAWALPINDI: Two personnel of the Pakistan Army were martyred on Tuesday after a heavy exchange of fire with the Indian forces at Line of Control (LoC), said Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement.
According to ISPR, Indian troops initiated ceasefire violation in Bagsar Sector along the Line of Control which was responded by Pakistani troops in a befitting manner.
During intense exchange of fire two soldiers, Naik Shahjahan, age 35 years and Sepoy Hameed, age 21 years, while fighting valiantly embraced martyrdom, added the ISPR.
The army’s media wing said that heavy losses were reported on the Indian side, including human and infrastructural losses.
Indian forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-calibre mortars and automatic weapons.
Last week, two Pakistan Army soldiers while responding to Indian unprovoked firing were martyred along the de facto border.
This year, India has committed more than 2,000 ceasefire violations, resulting in martyrdoms and serious injuries to several innocent civilians and soldiers.
