A day after the Indian army said it killed six to ten Pakistani soldiers and destroyed three terror camps in PoK, Pakistan has rejected the claims, saying there are no terror camps in the region.

Pakistan's military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor said Indian Army's assertion that it targeted terror camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir is false. He said India is welcome to take any foreign diplomat or media to the site to prove its claim on ground.

Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat said on Sunday that six to 10 Pakistan Army personnel were killed and three terror camps destroyed in retaliatory action by the Indian Army opposite the Tangdhar and Keran sectors in Jammu and Kashmir.

"The Indian Army chief's statement claiming destruction of 3 alleged camps is disappointing as he holds a very responsible appointment," Ghafoor said.

"There are no camps let alone targeting those. Indian Embassy in Pakistan is welcome to take any foreign diplomat/media to ‘prove’ it on the ground," he said.

Ghafoor said that the "propensity of false claims by senior Indian military leadership especially since Pulwama incident is detrimental to peace in the region."

“Such false claims by the Indian Army are being made to suit vested domestic interests. This is against professional military ethos,” Ghafoor said.

On Sunday, a civilian was killed and another three were injured in the firing by Pakistani troops in Tangdhar sector of Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir. India and Pakistan traded heavy fire across the Line of Control on Sunday.
