Two women were shot dead and five people injured in cross-border firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Sialkot’s Chaprar sector between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a press release.

According to the military’s media wing, Indian forces continued their ‘unprovoked’ ceasefire violations and “targeted the civilian population along the working boundary in Kundan Pur, Sialkot sector overnight”.

As a result of the unprovoked aggression by the Indian forces, two women on the Pakistani side were killed and five civilians, including three women, were injured.
