Major rank officer, two soldiers martyred in LoC firing
The cross border firing from Pakistan claimed the martyrdom of one Major rank officer besides two soldiers.
The incident took place in Keri in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday afternoon.
It may be mentioned that two countries have been exchanging heavy fire at different places along the Line of Control (LoC) on a daily basis.
An “area domination patrol” of the 2 Sikh battalion deployed in the Keri sector, under the 120 Infantry Brigade, was underway when it came under fire from Pakistan army posts at around noon time.
So far, the Army has recorded over 780 ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the 778-km LoC this year itself. >
