Pakistan Army has killed two Indian soldiers, moments after a boy was martyred along the Line of Control (LoC).
"Pakistan Army troops neutralised Indian post which targeted a minor along LOC. 2 Indian soldiers killed," the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Monday.
Earlier today, the military's media wing posted on twitter that the eight-year-old boy was martyred by Indian troops.
"Indian brutality takes life of an eight year old boy Ayan of Jajot village along LOC."

Ceasefire violations: AJK PM orders state honours for LoC martyrs
"Use of pellet guns in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) and blatant targeting of innocent unarmed civilians across LoC exposes true Indian face," the ISPR added.
On February 11, three civilians including two women were injured in Indian firing along the LoC in Battal, Hot Spring and Khuiratta sectors.
Unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India has been continuing since the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed more than 19,00 ceasefire violations. In 2018, Indian forces have committed more than 150 violations, prompting befitting response from the Pakistani side.
