One citizen was martyred and three others, including two women, were injured on Friday when Indian troops opened fire across the Line of Control (LoC), said a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The military's media wing said Indian troops opened unprovoked fire in the Rakhchikri and Khanjar sectors of the disputed border region. Civilian areas were targetted with rockets and mortars.

The Pakistan Army "responded effectively targeting Indian Army posts".

Earlier in September, two Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred by firing from Indian posts.

According to the ISPR, 29-year-old Sepoy Noor-ul-Hassan and 25-year-old Sepoy Waseem Ali were martyred after Indian forces opened fire with light and heavy weapons.

The Army had retaliated by targeting Indian check posts, inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy.

Firing and shelling on LoC in Azad Jammu and Kashmir have continued to increase. There have been 2,660 ceasefire violations by Indian troops during the current year. At least 19 civilians have been martyred and more than 200 injured in such incidents during 2020.
