Senior journalist Rahul Jalali on Saturday said that regular ceasefire violations by Pakistan are an attempt to terrorise Kashmiris. “The fact is that they were preparing for this kind of escalation. I think the attempt is to terrorise people on this side of the border because Nowshera is an area where lots of people live. Secondly, it’s also to ensure infiltration takes place, it’s a heavier armament being used to provide cover,” Jalali told ANI.
He further said the day Pakistan announced that many of their soldiers have been killed by Indian firing from across the border, it was expected that Islamabad would do ceasefire violations across the border. Meanwhile, Pakistan again resorted to ceasefire violation in Nowshera Sector of Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir.
