Ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) seem to have become a habit for Pakistani troops. In yet another such incident, the Pakistani troops utilized mortar shelling and firing by automatic weapons to create disturbance in border areas. This most recent violation of ceasefire occurred along the Line of Control (LoC) in Pooch district of Jammu and Kashmir. This is the second such incident in less than 24 hours.
The attack was entirely unprovoked and it prompted the Indian security forces to retaliate. Speaking on the development, a spokesperson from the Indian Army said, “There was unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan Army in Poonch sector from 0640 hours today, using 82 mm mortars, and automatic weapons.”
The Indian armed forces had no other option but to retaliate when faced with aggressive firing and mortar shelling from Pakistani troops. Indian soldiers took positions and gave a befitting reply to Pakistani troublemakers. The firing between the two sides is still continuing, although intermittently. The Indian Army said that its forces are safe and there haven’t been any injuries or fatalities.
It may be recalled that Pakistani troops had violated the ceasefire yesterday also by resorting to firing and mortar shelling in Krishnagati sector along the LoC in Pooch district.
