Pak again violates ceasefire in J&K’s Poonch, Indian Army responding strongly

Jammu: A day after two soldiers were martyred by unprovoked firing from across the Line of Control (LoC) by the Pakistan army, a similar violation was witnessed on Wednesday as well when the Pakistan Army resorted to heavy shelling, targeting Indian post in Poonch district of Jammu region.

Pakistan aggression was responded to by the Indian Army in a strong and effective manner

According to Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta, the Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars from 8.45 am onward in Bhimber Gali sector along the LoC. The unprovoked Pakistan aggression was responded to by the Indian Army in a strong and effective manner, said the defence spokesman.

Defence sources said the Pakistan Army had been violating the bilateral ceasefire agreement with impunity during the last three days. “This is being done with a nefarious design to provide cover fire to infiltrating terrorists waiting at the launch pads across the LoC to carry out terror related activities in the Kashmir valley,” said sources.
