3 Pakistan soldiers killed
Pakistan said on Thursday that three of its soldiers were killed in a cross-border exchange of fire in Kashmir, but India denied that five of its troops died too.
Major General Asif Ghafoor, spokesman of the Pakistani armed forces, tweeted that its three soldiers had died along with five of India’s when Indian forces opened fire along the Line of Control.
”Intermittent exchange of fire continues,” Ghafoor said.
An Indian army spokesman denied that. “No casualties. This assertion is wrong,” the spokesman said.
In a statement, the Indian Army said that from around 7am, Pakistan violated the ceasefire.
