The Pakistan Army on Sunday released a video purportedly showing destruction caused to the Indian military posts across the Line of Control.

The 27-second video was released a day after it claimed to have killed five Indian soldiers while retaliating to India’s “unprovoked ceasefire violation” in Tatta Pani sector along the LoC.

Indian Army sources, however, said it was a fake video and said there were no casualties.

Pakistan Army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor posted the video on twitter in the early hours of Sunday.

“Video clip showing destruction of Indian posts on LOC by Pak Army in response to unprovoked Indian firing on innocent citizens,” he said in a brief statement with the video.

This is the second time in two weeks when Pakistan army released such a video.

On May 24, it released a video purportedly showing heavy damage caused to the Indian posts across the LoC, in a tit-for-tat action after the Indian Army released a clip of the “punitive fire assaults” on Pakistani positions.

On Saturday, Army’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) claimed to have killed five Indian soldiers and destroyed Indian bunkers in the firing.

No further details of the cross-border exchange of fire were provided by the Pakistan Army.

Also on Saturday, the Indian Army said that a woman was injured when the Pakistani Army violated ceasefire twice in two sectors of Poonch district by firing mortar shells on forward posts and civilian areas along the LoC, prompting Indian troops to retaliate.
