Pakistan Army kills two Indian soldiers at Kupwara in Jammu and Kashmir

Two army personnel were killed on Wednesday after Pakistan Army resorted to firing without any provocation at Kupwara in Jammu and Kashmir, according to reports.

According to Times Now, Pakistan targetted the Indian soldiers without any reason.

IANS quoted defence ministry sources saying that the soldiers were killed in Furkiya area of Chowkibal sector, which is a known route used by militants  for infiltrating into the Kashmir Valley from Pakistan.

The incident comes a day after three militants were killed in an overnight encounter with security forces in Budgam district of Kashmir.

The Pakistan Army on Sunday also targeted villages and forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district by resorting to heavy mortar shelling and firing automatic weapons in yet another ceasefire violation.

There have been 23 incidents of ceasefire violation, one BAT attack and two infiltration bids by Pakistan in June this year in which 4 people including 3 jawans were killed and 12 injured, officials said.
