JAMMU: Pakistan on Friday violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in J&K’s Rajouri and Poonch districts, resorting to unprovoked and indiscriminate small arms firing and mortar shelling on forward Indian Army posts and border villages. This is the eighth such breach of truce in the past six days.
“Around 3.30am, Pakistan violated ceasefire and initiated firing of small arms accompanied by heavy shelling along the LoC in Poonch’s Krishna Ghati sector, to which Indian Army effectively retaliated. There was no injury or damage suffered by own side,” Jammu-based defence spokesperson Lt Col Devender Anand said.
“Again around 7.20am, Pakistani troops breached the truce along the LoC in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district, attracting a befitting retaliation from own soldiers,” Lt Col Anand added.
