A Pakistani soldier embraced martyrdom while four citizens including two young girls and a woman sustained injuries after the Indian troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) on Saturday.

The martyred soldier is identified as Havaldar Manzoor Abbasi.

The Indian military used rockets and mortars in Battal, Satwal, Khanjar, Nikyal and Jandrot sectors along the de facto border, targeting civilian population and military posts, said a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

“Pakistan Army troops effectively responded to Indian firing and targeted those posts which initiated shelling,” said the ISPR statement, adding the Indian posts sustained heavy damages with casualties in response.
