Special Forces of Indian Army killed five Pakistani soldiers along the LoC

At least five Pakistani soldiers were killed after Special Forces of Indian Army targeted their vehicle along the Line of Control (LoC) in Furikiyan sector in Kupwara District on July 16, reports Daily Excelsior. Sources said that Special Forces of Army (Paras) targeted a Pakistani Army vehicle on Neelam Valley road on July 16. The vehicle that was targeted by the Special Forces fell into Kishan Ganga River called as Neelam River by Pakistan which is the LoC in the sector. They said five soldiers drowned in the river and one body has been recovered so far. “Pakistani troops were seen searching for the bodies in the river”, they said. Pakistani troops later targeted forward posts of Army but there was no loss of life. The intermittent firing in the area continued.

Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) confirmed the incident and said that Indian Army targeted an army vehicle which fell in the river at Athmuqam in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). The ISPR said the body of one of the soldiers had been found while the search for the others was under way. “Pakistani troops effectively responded to the ceasefire violation”, the ISPR added.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Army on July 17 (today) resorted to heavy shelling and firing targeting the Indian positions on the LoC in Bhimber Gali sector of Rajouri District, Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta said. "The indiscriminate firing using small arms, automatics and mortars that started from 7.30am is still on," Mehta said. The Indian Army was retaliating strongly and effectively, he added.
