Indian firing along LoC kills two women, says Pakistan

India killed at least two women and injured six other people in unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, Pakistani army said on Tuesday.

According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), a media wing of the Pakistani army, unprovoked Indian border forces fired with artillery, heavy mortars and automatic weapons in Naukot and Qaiser Kot areas of Lipa Valley near the LoC in Pak-administered Kashmir and targeted the civilian population in different villages.

The deceased women were identified as Sumaira Younis and Maryam.

Pakistani troops engaged Indian troops and destroyed four Indian posts, the ISPR claimed in a statement.

The fresh cease-fire violation took place when U.S Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was in Islamabad. He later left for India at the evening.

Despite a cease-fire agreement signed in 2003, the two countries frequently blame each other for firing at the Working Boundary and the Line of Control.
