Jammu: The Pakistani Army fired mortar shells at five Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, prompting the Indian Army to retaliate, military sources said Wednesday.
The Pakistanis fired over 40 mortars and rockets at the Kirpan, Kranti, Roza Battal and Nanga Tekri posts in the Krishna Ghati and Jhallas sectors Tuesday night, the sources said.
These posts are in the high mountains of Poonch district, 240 km north of Jammu. There was no damage to the posts.
The Pakistani Army was not only trying to escalate tensions but seeking to push a group of infiltrators into India, army sources said.
