Jammu: Pakistani troops again violated the bilateral ceasefire late on Monday when they fired at Indian positions in Jammu and Kashmir`s Poonch district, an army spokesperson said Tuesday.
Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions in Mendhar sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district, Colonel RK Palta said.
"Pakistan fired at our positions in Mendhar sector of the LoC around 9.30 p.m. yesterday (Monday). The fire was retaliated. No loss of life has taken place on our side," the spokesperson said.
