The officer said there have been 83 ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along the LoC in Jammu region falling under 16 Corps area. As many as 16 ceasefire violations have been recorded along the LoC in Kashmir region falling under 15 corps area, he said.

The worst-ever Pakistani shelling targeting civil population took place on November 1 when eight persons, including two children and four women, were killed and 22 others injured along the IB and the LoC in five sectors of J&K, forcing Indian troops to give befitting reply by destroying 14 Pakistani posts and killing two of their troopers.

The state government had closed over 400 schools along the International Border (IB) and the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu region in wake of the ongoing heavy cross-border firing. A total of 18 people, including 12 civilians, were killed and more than 83 suffered injuries in Pakistani shelling and firing along IB and LoC in Jammu.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had on Wednesday asked the army personnel posted along the Line of Control to remain alert and give a befitting response to any “misadventure” from across the border. “While complimenting their valour and fortitude, which Parrikar said was the entire nation’s pride, he also impressed upon the soldiers to remain in a very high state of alert to give a befitting response to any misadventure from across,” the officer said.

    Tiberius Julius Abdes Pantera (c. 22 BC – AD 40) was a Roman soldier whose tombstone was found in Bingerbrück, Germany, in 1859.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Based on the claim of the ancient Greek philosopher Celsus, Jesus was result of an affair between his mother Mary and a Roman soldier. He said she was "convicted of adultery and had a child by a soldier named Panthera". Tiberius Pantera could have been serving in the region at the time of Jesus's conception. Both the ancient Talmud and medieval Jewish writings and sayings reinforced this notion, referring to Jesus as "Yeshu ben Pantera" (Jesus, son of Pantera).

            There exists no real ceasefire but only uneasy calm the enemy being able to strike at will and almost always escaping with mud on Indian prestige. This must change with the pro active action putting in place a real deterrent
