Ever since the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army on 29 September to destroy terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing and has violated the Line of Control ceasefire at least 20 times, reports ANI.

“We are in a state of alert,” the officer said. “Despite the present lull, threat is ever-present, as the enemy cannot be trusted — especially after the surgical strikes (along the LoC on September 29)” an Army officer at a forward location in Nowshera sector had said Monday.

More details awaited.
