Security forces defused six mortar shells fired by Pakistani troops along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district, officials said on Friday.

 

Pakistan troops have been shelling areas along the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts for the past 13 days.

According to the official report, Security forces detected the six unexploded mortar shells fired by Pakistan army in Krishnagati, Mendhar and Balakote sectors of the district. The bomb disposal squads later defused them safely.

Today morning, Pakistan violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Qasba and Kirni sectors of Poonch district.

According to Army sources, Pakistan initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and shelling with mortars along the LoC in Qasba and Kirni sectors at around 11 am. The Indian Army is retaliating befittingly. 

On Thursday, Pakistan army had intensified firing and shelling targetting villages and forwards posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch and Rajouri districts of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Pakistani troops have been hitting the civilian areas along the LoC with mortars and small arms for the last 13 days.

The residents living in villages near the Indo-Pak border in Rajouri, Poonch, and Kupwara are in fear ever since the three civilians were killed in Pakistan shelling last week.
