Pakistani troops have resorted to unprovoked firing on the Indian side along the LoC at frequent intervals almost every day since the Indian Army’s Special Forces carried out surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the Line of Control. The strikes were conducted on September 29.

On Wednesday evening, Pakistani troops resorted to mortar shelling after a 12-hour lull at nearly 10 places in Akhnoor, Sunderbani and Mendhar sectors of Jammu division.
