Indian forces open fire along LoC once again, get befitting response

SIALKOT: Indian border security forces once again violated the Line of Control ceasefire and opened unprovoked firing along the border, however no casualties were reported.

Pakistan Rangers befittingly responded, forcing the Indian guns to fall silent. The Indian forces resorted to firing after midnight near Iftikharabad sector.

In the last few days, India has violated the ceasefire in several sectors along LoC.

On Saturday, Indian border forces opened unprovoked fire targeting civilian population at Chhamb sector of the LoC from 4 am to 8 am.

According to ISPR, Indian border forces also fired mortar shells at the civilian population.

Pakistan and India are at loggerheads as the Narendra Modi-led Indian government accused Pakistan for the attack on Indian military base in Uri sector of the Occupied Kashmir.

Seventeen Indian soldiers were killed in the attack on the military base.

The Indian Director General of Military Operations, after the cross border firing, claimed that the country’s forces carried out surgical strikes in Pakistan.

Six Indian soldiers, who were trying to infiltrate into Pakistani territory, were killed by the Pakistani forces on Friday whereas one of the total 15 military men was also captured by the Pakistan Army following the clash.

Ground realities expose Indian claims: Khawaja Asif

Federal Minister for Defence, Water and Power, Khawaja Muhammad Asif said on Sunday the ground realities had exposed Indian false claims globally about conducting surgical strike in Pakistan.

Talking to the media persons here at the PML-N House, he said that surgical strike “drama” was planned, staged and played by Indian intelligence agencies in a bid to divert the world’s attention from the burning Kashmir Issue.

He said that the facts and ground realities had revealed the Indian lies about surgical strike.

He said that the sacrifices of Kashmiri people would not go to waste and they would get freedom from Indian yoke.

He said that Pakistan had again strongly rejected the Indian surgical strike claims.

Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that the defence of Pakistan was in very strong hands, as the present government had made the country’s defence impregnable.

He said the whole nation stood united and was ready to sacrifice their lives to defend the motherland while battling shoulder to shoulder with the armed forces of Pakistan.

He said the government and Pak Army were successfully foiling all internal and external conspiracies against the grand CPEC project, adding that India was still not ready to accept the universal truth of the project.

The defence minister said the CPEC project was a destiny of economical stability of Pakistan and India and other anti-Pakistan lobbies  were not ready to accept the project.

Replying to a question, Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that India should not be under any illusion that it could invade Pakistani territory, adding that armed forces of Pakistan were ready to protect every inch of the country. –APP
