RAWALPINDI: Three Pakistani soldiers embraced martyrdom in the wake of unprovoked firing by Indian forces across the Line of Control on Monday, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
The unprovoked fire came in Thoob sector of the LoC near Bhimber, critically wounding three troops. Pakistani forces responded befittingly to the unprovoked fire, the ISPR said.
The wounded troops later succumbed to their injuries. They were identified as Naik Ghulam Rasool, Naik Imran Zafar and Sepoy Imam Bux.
Of late, India has been violating the ceasefire along the LoC and the Working Boundary, which the Pakistan Army and Rangers respond to in a fitting manner.
Earlier this month, a 25-year-old labourer named Ashfaq was martyred as a result of Indian firing in Khuiratta sector.
