Srinagar: Pakistan's desperate attempts to infiltrate terrorists into the Indian territory continues. Pakistani forces on Thursday resorted to unprovoked firing in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked shelling at 3:30 am today.
Speaking to IANS, Defence spokesman, lieutenant colonel, Manish Mehta told IANS, "The troops violated bilateral ceasefire in Bhimber Ghali (BG) sector of the LoC. They used mortars to target our positions."
This was the 31st ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops along the LoC since the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes in PoK to destroy terror launching pads.
Pakistani troops on Wednesday violated ceasefire in Rajouri-Poonch sector of J&K, shelling Indian positions with mortar bombs and using automatic arms.
On October 16, Pakistani troops violated ceasefire twice along LoC in Naushera and Rajouri sectors in which one jawan was martyred.
In a first, India carried out surgical strikes on seven terror launch pads across the LoC with the Army inflicting "significant casualties" on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from PoK, days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned Uri attack would not go unpunished.
Seven terror launch pads across the LoC were targeted by the Army on the intervening night of September 28 and 29 in a nearly five-hour-long operation during which heliborne and ground forces were deployed.
