A Pakistani soldier was killed Thursday in border clashes with Indian forces in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, the Pakistani military said.
The soldier was killed in the Satwal sector on the Pakistani side of the Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border that divides Kashmir into two parts controlled by Pakistan and India.
“The Pakistani military responded effectively to Indian fire, causing significant damage to Indian soldiers and men,” Pakistan’s military media branch, Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), said in a statement.
The incident comes two days after a 50-year-old woman was kill and three people were injured in the areas of Tatta Pani and Jandrot.
Pakistan blamed India for this incident.
Clashes at the borders have increased in recent weeks.
Pakistan has accused Indian troops of deliberately opening fire on a United Nations vehicle carrying two observers on the Pakistani side of Kashmir earlier this month.
According to Pakistan’s foreign ministry, Indian forces have committed more than 3,000 ceasefire violations this year, in which 28 people have been killed and over 250 injured.
Pakistani authorities summoned a senior Indian diplomat at least three times last week to protest the ceasefire violations.
India does not systematically share data on its bombings in Pakistan, but also records civilian casualties due to what it describes as Pakistani military bombings.
South Asian neighbors with nuclear weapons have already fought two of their three wars in Kashmir, a region that both sides claim in full but parts of which are administered.
