Pakistan's armed forces remain on high alert along the Line of Control (LoC) and are ready to thwart any Indian aggression, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.

In a statement, the military's media wing said: "all required safeguards along the eastern border are in place to thwart any Indian aggression".

The ISPR added that in view of the prevailing tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi, the Pakistan Army troops "are at high alert along the Line of Control."

Referring to the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and the Pakistan Navy (PN), the military said both services "continue to stay fully alert" and remain ready to counter any ill-advised adventurism by India.

"The Pakistan Armed Forces are in a state of readiness for all eventualities," read the ISPR communique.

The military's media wing also shared details of Indian aggression along the LoC. "Over the past 48 hours, Indian troops resorted to increased ceasefire violations in Kotli, Khuiratta and Tatta Pani sectors along the LoC."

"India's deliberate firing on civilians resulted in the martyrdom of four citizens and injuries to two more."

The statement asserted that Pakistan Army troops responded effectively to the violations and there were reports of casualties to Indian forces and damage to Indian posts.

In conclusion, the ISPR urged the Pakistani public to exercise caution in times of increasing disinformation, urging the people to "stay mindful about rumour mills and stay responsible in the use of social media."
