A 60-year-old woman was killed in unprovoked Indian firing along the Line of Control (LoC) on Saturday.
“India’s unprovoked ceasefire violation along LoC in Kot Kehtera sector [killed] a 60-year-old woman, [who was a] resident of Thandi Kassi village,” the Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement. “Pakistani troops effectively responded.”
Both sides routinely accuse each other of violating the 2003 ceasefire agreement along the LoC. However, it is impossible to verify claims from either side due to lack of access to the heavily militarised zone.
Army chief General Qamar Bajwa, on his visit to the border last month, termed the violations an attempt to distract Pakistan Army from its fight against terrorism.
