At least 6 Pakistani civilians dead, 11 wounded as India continues heavy shelling across LoC

Earlier, ISPR had said two civilians had been martyred and two others were left injured as Indian forces targeted civilian population in Tattapani and Jandrot sectors along LoC. The injured have been shifted to a hospital in Kotli, the military’s media wing added.

The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Pakistan Navy continue to be alert and vigilant, the ISPR stated.

Last week,  Indian jets dropped payload at a hilly forest area in Balakot. In reply to that,  Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Wednesday shot down two Indian military aircraft in Pakistani airspace after repeated LoC violation. Pakistan also captured an Indian pilot Abhinandan alive who was released on Friday as a “peace gesture”.
