In yet another provocative attack, Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire on Tuesday by firing on Indian posts along Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, forcing Indian troops to retaliate effectively.
“Pakistani troops resorted to firing from automatic weapons on Indian posts along the LoC in Bhimber Gali area of Rajouri district from 2330 hours last night,” said a defence spokesperson.
Troops guarding the borderline fired back resulting in intermittent exchanges of fire but there was no casualties or damage , he said, adding, “firing exchanges continued for a brief period”.
This is the fourth incident of ceasefire violation in the past 11 days along the LoC.
Earlier, on May 3, Pakistani troops resorted to firing from small arms and automatic weapons on Indian posts along the LoC in Mendhar in Poonch district, on April 28, along the LoC in Bhimber Gali in Rajouri district and on April 25, along posts in Doda battalion areas in Poonch district.
