Pakistani Forces “are befittingly responding to Indian Firing,” says Pakistan Military

The tension between the two nations has risen since the military raid on an Indian army camp in Kashmir on September 18 that left eight soldiers dead.

Pakistan says military clashes with India are ongoing along the disputed Kashmir border, killing at least two Pakistani civilians and wounding 10 people Wednesday.

According to a Pakistan military statement, the two fatalities occurred when Indian border forces launched “unprovoked” fire across the Shaprar Sector. It said Pakistani forces “are befittingly responding to Indian firing.”

The military says border skirmishes this year have caused four civilian fatalities and wounded up to 25 others.

“It was conveyed to the Indian side that it should investigate the incident and share the findings with Pakistan, instruct its troops to respect the cease-fire in letter and spirit, refrain from intentionally targeting the villages,” it said.
