Jammu, December 26

Five Pakistani soldiers have been killed over the past two days on the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri and Poonch districts, Defence Ministry sources said on Tuesday.

Three Pakistani soldiers were killed and another injured when the Army foiled an infiltration bid in Nowshera sector of the LoC in Rajouri district on Monday evening.

Noticing suspicious movement on the LoC, alert troops fired to foil the infiltration bid, the defence sources said. The retaliation by Army took place in Rakhchakri, in Pakistan’s Rawalkot sector.

On Sunday, two Pakistani sniper shooters were killed in Indian firing on the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts.

“These sniper shooters were trying to target Indian soldiers on the LoC,” sources said.

Four Indian soldiers, including a Major, were killed in Pakistan firing on the LoC in Rajouri district on Saturday. IANS
