Guns fall silent in Poonch area along LoC
Poonch: After six days of massive exchange of fire between Indian and Pakistani troops, guns fell silent on Friday in Poonch area along LoC following a "befitting reply" by Indian Army.
"There was no ceasefire violation from Pakistan till this evening—guns have fallen silent after our befitting reply to Pakistan firing yesterday," a senior Army officer said.
Turning the 2003 Indo-Pak border truce "meaningless", Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing on LoC posts for the past six days.
"The 2003 Indo-Pak ceasefire has become meaningless-- There is daily firing these days as was witnessed before 2003 when truce between India and Pakistan took place," a senior security officer said.
There has been 60 ceasefire violations by the Pakistani troops this year from January 1 to August 5, which is more than 80 per cent more than the last year during the same corresponding period.
