A 22-year-old was injured as the Indian Army once again resorted to unprovoked aggression along the Line of Control (LoC) using "mortars and heavy weapons", said the ISPR on Sunday.
In a statement, the military's media wing said that Indian forces targeted civilian population along the LoC late last night (Friday) in the Battal Sector.
Pakistan Army effectively responded to Indian Army's firing, according to the ISPR.
"Indian Army troops unprovoked ceasefire violation in Battal Sector along #LOC, targeting civil population with mortars and heavy weapons, late last night. A 22 years old civilian got injured.
"Pakistan Army troops responded effectively to Indian firing," tweeted the ISPR.
Tensions have been high between the two nuclear-armed neighbours over the past few weeks as India continues to violate the ceasefire agreement over the LoC and injure innocent civilians.
A 13-year-old girl, identified as Iqra Shabbir, embraced martyrdom as Indian troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) last month.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Indian troops had initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation in Hajipir and Bedori sectors along the LoC, targeting the civilian population.
“Due to indiscriminate firing of Indian troops in Mensar village, Bedori sector, a 13-year-old girl Iqra Shabbir embraced shahadat, while her mother and a 12-year-old boy sustained serious injuries,” the ISPR had said.
