Pakistan releases video of ‘LoC attack’

Screenshot taken from a video tweeted by Pakistan Military purportedly showing “destruction of Indian posts on LoC”.

The Pakistani military on Sunday released a video of bombing Indian positions on the Line of Control(LOC) to back its claim that it has killed five Indian soldiers and destroyed Indian bunkers along the Tatta Pani sector.

Military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted on Sunday: ‘Video clip showing destruction of Indian posts on LoC by Pak Army in response to unprovoked Indian firing on innocent citizens’.

The video clip showed intense mortar shelling on Indian positions and destruction that followed. No evidence of soldiers killing was shown.

Claims refuted

India refuted Pakistani claim that five Indian soldiers have been killed.

There was no word on the casualties on the Pakistani side though sources said at least one Pakistani soldier, Waris Shah, had been killed and two injured in the clash.

Sources also claimed that two civilians, Sajid and Wasim, were also injured. The clash was so intense that trees caught fire near Sehra and Darra Sher Khan villages.
