"The day seven of our soldiers were martyred on the border, we killed at least 11 Indian soldiers," he claimed.

He claimed that Pakistan has killed "40-44 Indian troops" in the current clashes but the Indian army was refusing to accept and own its casualties.

General Raheel said India should "show courage" and own the deaths of its security personnel.

"The Indian army should man up and accept their losses," he said.

He said Pakistan army was professional force and was accepting its "casualties" while giving befitting response to "unprovoked" firing.
