Jammu, Jan 17: Pakistan forces once again resorted to ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Thursday.
Pakistan troopers used small arms and automatics to target Indian positions in Khari Karmara area.
“Our troops effectively retaliated to the unprovoked ceasefire violation. Firing exchanges started at around 4.30 a.m. and continued till 6.30 a.m. No casualty or damage was reported from our side,” news agency IANS quoted the defence the sources as saying.
Ceasefire violations by Pakistan Army have been intermittently continuing on the LoC in Rajouri and Poonch districts since earlier this month.
Meanwhile, 2018 saw the highest number of ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops in the last 15 years with 2,936 incidents reported in the last year.
