The last time, Pakistani troops had resorted to firing on the Indian side on Wednesday injuring four army jawns in Mankote area of Mendhar. The Indian troops had retaliated that time as well.
Ever since India carried out surgical strikes across the LoC causing significant damage to terrorists and those shielding them, Pakistani troops have been resorting to unprovoked firing at one or the other place along the LoC in Jammu region. The international border, however, has been peaceful, though state government has alerted people living in 5 km border to remain prepared for migration to safer places any time in view of heightened tension along the borders.
