The Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor categorically denied that the army had initiated cross-border fire and the bodies of Pakistani soldiers had been found by Indian troops in held Kashmir.
New Delhi claimed to have repelled an attack by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) which resulted in casualties, the military’s media wing has come out rubbishing them as “mere propaganda.”
Earlier in the day, the Indian army claimed it had “successfully foiled” a “border action team (BAT) operation by the Pakistan army” in the Keran sector.
“Five to seven … Pakistan Army [men] were killed in the unsuccessful BAT operation that began on the night of July 31,” according to the report. The Indian report claimed that four bodies were lying inside the occupied territory.
The ISPR, however dismissed this as mere propaganda meant to deflect from the Indian regime’s atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
He also condemned the use of cluster munitions by the Indian Army along the Line of Control (LoC) targeting the civilian population.
He further stated that “no weapon can suppress the determination of Kashmiris to get their right to self-determination”.
