Two Pakistan Army soldiers embraced martyrdom due to Indian ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) in Dewa Sector, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.
“In Dewa sector Naib Subedar Kandero and Sepoy Ehsan of Pak Army embraced shahadat [martyrdom],” said DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghaffor in a tweet.
The military wing further said said that Pakistan Army troops damaged Indian posts in Haji Pir Sector and killed three Indian soldiers including a subedar caused by Indian ceasefire violations during the past 36 hours. A few had also been injured, ISPR said.
Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Bajwa visited the LOC on Monday. During his visit, the Army Chief also spoke to the troops deployed there.
The COAS said that Pakistan’s quest for peace should not be taken as a weakness. “There will never be a compromise on Kashmir whatever the cost. We are capable & fully prepared to thwart any misadventure/ aggression for defense of our motherland,” the Army Chief was quoted to say by the DG ISPR.
