J&K: Pakistan violates ceasefire in Poonch sector

The Pakistani troops violated ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch sector late night on Sunday. The Indian Army also retaliated strongly to unprovoked firing which continued for two hours.

In another violation on Friday, the Pakistani troops had targeted Indian posts along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district.

The troops resorted to small arms firing along forward areas in Baba Khori and Kala along LoC around 1930 hours, a senior district officer had said.

The firing was going on intermittently, he had said, adding there was no casualty.

The Pakistani Army had targeted the Poonch sector by initiating unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars on October 4.
