Two women were shot dead and five people injured in cross-border firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Sialkot’s Chaprar sector between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a press release.
According to the military’s media wing, Indian forces continued their ‘unprovoked’ ceasefire violations and “targeted the civilian population along the working boundary in Kundan Pur, Sialkot sector overnight”.
As a result of the unprovoked aggression by the Indian forces, two women on the Pakistani side were killed and five civilians, including three women, were injured.
“Pakistan Rangers Punjab effectively responded to neutralise Indian Border Security Forces posts,” the ISPR statement said.
Unprovoked firing by Indian forces across the LoC had taken 832 lives, left 3,000 injured and had damaged 3,300 houses in the first half of 2017, according to experts.
