In a late night tweet, the Northern Command said there were no casualties due to firing by Pakistan on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Sharif, in an informal chat with journalists in Islamabad on Wednesday, had claimed that "the day seven of our soldiers were martyred on the border, we killed at least 11 Indian soldiers."
No fatal casualties due to Pak firing on 14,15 or 16 Nov. Pak Army Chief claim of killing Indian soldiers on 14 Nov false.@adgpi- NorthernComd.IA (@NorthernComd_IA) November 16, 2016
He claimed that Pakistan has killed "40-44 Indian troops" in the current clashes but the Indian army was refusing to accept and own its casualties.
General Raheel said India should "show courage" and own the deaths of its security personnel. "The Indian army should man up and accept their losses," he said.
He said the Pakistani army was a professional force and was accepting its "casualties".
Since India carried out surgical strikes in Pakistan on September 29, ceasefire violations by Pakistan have escalated significantly. Islamabad denies that Indian troops crossed into Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir to target areas used to gather terrorists. The cross-border raids took place days after Pakistani terrorists attacked an army base in Uri in Kashmir, leaving 19 soldiers dead.
Since the surgical strikes, India has lost 13 military and para-military personnel in cross-border firing.
