India Kills Seven Pakistani Breaching Ceasefire on Sailkot Working Boundary
SIALKOT: At least seven Pakistani civilians were killed and several others sustained injuries as Indian Border Security Forces (BSF) personnel resorted to firing and shelling along the Working Boundary in Sialkot's Charwah, Harpal, Chaprar and Sajeetgarh sectors through early Friday morning, sources said.
Sources said Punjab Rangers were responding with retaliatory firing.
Rangers sources said the attacks along the Sialkot Working Boundary have mostly harmed civilians, adding that livestock belonging to residents of the area has been killed, while houses have been partially damaged.
Instances of firing across the Indo-Pak border have occurred intermittently over the years.
In December 2013, the two countries had pledged to uphold the 2003 ceasefire accord which had been left in tatters by repeated violations that year. The truce breaches had put the nascent bilateral peace dialogue on hold.
