Pak army violates ceasefire along LoC in Poonch sector

24/03/2019
JAMMU, Mar 23: Pakistan army Saturday resorted to unprovoked firing on forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district, a defence spokesman said. The small arms firing from across the border in Poonch sector started at around 5.30 pm, he added. The Indian Army retaliated befittingly, the spokesman said. He said there was no report of any casualty on the Indian side in the latest ceasefire violation by Pakistan. Official sources said Pakistani troops targeted Shahpur and Kerni areas, forcing people to take shelter inside their homes. The skirmishes between the two sides witnessed a spurt after India's preemptive air strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camp in Balakot on February 26 following the February 14 Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed. Five persons - four civilians and a soldier - were killed and several others injured as Pakistan army targeted dozens of villages in over 125 incidents of ceasefire violations along the LoC in the s...
