The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Friday that the Indian Army encounter with few freedom fighters in District Kupwara within Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir territory.
In a satement ISPR said,
“On night 7/8 November 2020, reportedly Indian Army had an encounter with few freedom fighters in District Kupwara, well within Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir territory, opposite Neelum valley, wherein it suffered few casualties including 4 soldiers.”
According to the details, Indian Army had opted for resorting to unprovoked and indiscriminate fire of all calibers, including Artillery and heavy mortars, along LOC in various sectors of AJ&K
“To ward off the humiliation faced by Indian Army in front of domestic audience, instead of finding the reasons from within and addressing the same, on 13 November 2020.”
The ISPR told that,
The targeted areas included Neelum Valley (Nekrun, Kel, Sharda, Dudhnial, Shahkot, Jura, Nauseri sectors), Leepa Valley (Danna, Mandal and Kayani secotrs), Jhelum Valley (Chham and Pandu secorts), and Bagh Valley (Pirkanthi, Sankh, Haji Pir, Bedori and Kailer sectors).
Inian Army also targeted civil population that caused serious casualities to the civilians. 4 people were martyred and 12 sustained injuries.
“In this deliberate attempt, Indian Army did not limit itself to engagement of Army Posts / positions, rather, in utter disregard to all international obligations and human rights, targeted civil population,” said ISPR.
On the other hand, Pakistan Army has given a befitting reply to the Indian Army in response to the provocative act and targered those Indian posts which engaged innocent civilians.
“As a result, substantial losses, both in terms of men and material, have been incurred on to Indian troops which have also been accepted by Indian Media.”
One solider of the Pakistan Army has embraced martyrdom in this valiant act while 5 were wounded.
“Such cowardly acts of targeting innocent civilians reflect sheer lack of morality, utter un-professionalism and total disregard to human rights by the Indian Army and are also clear violation of cease fire understanding of 2003,” said ISPR.
It is once again reiterated, that Pakistan is a peace loving country and Pakistan Army pursue the same aspirations. However, we stand committed to defend the motherland and our Kashmiri brethren even at the cost of our blood and lives.
“We assure, that all such provocative acts shall continue to be responded in the same coin.”
