11 Pakistani soldiers killed by Indian Army in retaliation to ceasefire violation

India launched a counter-attack to Pakistan’s ceasefire violation. Indian Army killed a total of 11 Pakistani soldiers, including two SSG (Special Service Group) commandos, and injuring more than 10 persons on the Pakistani side. Videos released by the Indian Army showed the enemy targets in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK) being destroyed.


Five security personnel, including a BSF Sub-Inspector, four Army jawans, and 6 civilians were killed on Friday, in multiple ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LOC) from Gurez sector to URI sector of Jammu and Kashmir, as officially reported.

Ministry of Defence spokesperson Col Rajesh Kalia said Pakistan used mortars and targeted civilian areas in India. “Our troops retaliated, causing casualties and substantial damage to Pakistan army’s infrastructure across the LOC. Several ammo and fuel dumps and multiple terrorist launch pads were damaged,” he said.

“Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation along the LoC spread across multiple sectors, including Dawar, Keran, Uri, and Naugam. The suspicious movement was observed by our troops at the forward posts along the LoC in the Keran sector,” Col Kalia said.
