Ceasefire violation: Heavy damage done to Pakistan posts, says Indian Army

Two jawans were killed as Pakistani Army opened unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Krishna Ghati and Poonch sectors.



Jammu: Even as two jawans were killed as Pakistani Army opened unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Krishna Ghati and Poonch sectors, violating the ceasefire, the Indian Army said on Sunday that heavy damage had been inflicted to Pak posts.

"Being strongly retaliated. Heavy damage to Pakistan posts," the Northern Command tweeted.

In Krishna Ghati, Pakistani Army opened fire in a bid to facilitate two infiltration bids. In Poonch sector, at least four places came under indiscriminate shelling and firing by Pakistani army, targeting civil and defence facilities and civilian areas, an Army officer said.

Today's ceasefire violation on the border came after a lull of two days when an uneasy calm prevailed along the LoC and the International Border (IB).

"The violation of the ceasefire agreement by the Pakistani side has become a rule rather than an exception after the Indian Army on September 28 night carried out surgical strike against terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control," officials said, as per PTI.

There have been over 100 ceasefire violations on Indian posts and civilian areas along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir after the surgical strike.

"Pakistani troops have carried out over 100 ceasefire violations along LoC in Jammu and Kashmir after surgical strike by the Indian army on terror launch pads in Pok," another Army officer said.

The officer said that there have been 84 ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along LoC in Jammu region falling under 16 Corps area.

As many as 16 ceasefire violations have been recorded along 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.
