RAWALPINDI – In a tit-for-tat action, Pakistan Army on Monday destroyed an Indian army post across the Line of Control and killed two soldiers hours after a Pakistani minor boy lost his life in Indian firing on a border village.

“Pakistan Army troops neutralised an Indian post which targeted a minor along the LoC,” killing two soldiers, ISPR said in a statement.

Pakistan army’s media cell denounced Indian brutality, condemning the use of pellet guns in Indian-occupied Kashmir.

“Use of Pellet guns in Indian Occupied Kashmir and blatant targeting of innocent unarmed civilians across LoC exposes [the] true Indian face,” he wrote in a tweet along with a photo of the deceased boy.

An eight-year-old boy Ayan was killed in Indian firing along the Line of Control, ISPR said.

The incident comes days after Pakistani troops destroyed another Indian army post that was “targeting innocent citizens” in Tatta Pani (Hot Spring) sector of Kotli district. Five Indian soldiers were killed and many injured then, according to ISPR.

That development had come hours after Indian troops hit a school van in a highly vulnerable border village in AJK, killing its driver on the spot.

The heavily militarised dividing line is witnessing constant cross-border shelling in a serious breach of a truce agreement signed in November 2003 by the two armies.
