Pakistan Army on Friday said it had shot down an Indian quadcopter after it intruded Pakistani territory near Rakchikri sector along the Line of Control (LoC).
“Indian quadcopter spying across LoC in Rakhchikri sector shot down by Pakistan Army shooters,” the Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) tweeted. “Wreckage held.”
In 2015, the army had claimed of shooting down an alleged Indian ‘spy drone’ used for aerial photography.
During the past year, Indian occupation forces have increasingly targeted civilian areas on the Pakistani side, resulting in the martyrdom.
In 2017 to date, 1,140 ceasefire violations have taken place along the LoC and Working Boundary, according to the ISPR. As a result, 45 civilians have been killed and 192 injured.
