“10-12 Pakistan Army soldiers injured in the Indian Army firing in which a large number of Pakistan Army bunkers, fuel dumps, and launch pads have also been destroyed,” quoted the sources.
Indian Army has reportedly targeted Pakistani bunkers across the Line of Control (LoC) in north Kashmir with artillery guns and anti-tank guided missiles in response to heavy shelling by the neighbouring army.
Indian army, on the other hand, suffered causalities as well including three Indian soldiers, a Border Security Force sub-inspector and four civilians. Three Indian soldiers were injured. The escalation in tensions came only five days after three Indian troops and three terrorists were killed in exchange along the LoC.

The situation in Uri town was tense even as ambulances sped towards villages near the LoC to ferry injured civilians to hospitals. Mortar shells landed close to residential areas in Izmerg, Baktore and Tarabal localities and many people are still in underground bunkers.
