Islamabad: The Pakistani Army on Monday said at least seven of its soldiers were killed in firing allegedly by the Indian troops across the Line of Control.
In a statement, the Pakistani Army said that seven Pakistani soldiers were killed at the LoC in the Bhimber sector in an alleged ceasefire violation by Indian troops late Sunday night.
It added that the Pakistani troops responded to "unprovoked" Indian firing and targeted Indian posts effectively.
Last week, Pakistan Foreign Office had said that the civilian death toll from alleged Indian shelling has risen to at least 25 in the past few weeks.
Notably, the Indian troops have foiled 61 Pakistan abetted infiltration bids both on LoC and IB since September 29, the day the Army had conducted surgical strikes along the Line of Control to eliminate terror launch pads in the PoK.
