It is worth mentioning here that India had conducted its first successful flight test of the endogenously developed Rustom-II medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (MALE UAV) just three days ago.
Earlier in the day, four children were killed and three others injured by Indian forces along the Line of Control (LOC) in Azad Kashmir.
“Two girls and their brother died when mortar shells fired by Indian troops hit their house in Kotli district along the Line of Control (LOC),” Raja Arif Mehmodd, a local administration official, told AFP. A fourth child succumbed to his wounds later.
He said the eldest girl was aged 10 and the youngest girl aged five.
“All belonged to the same family,” he added.
