Jammu: In yet another violation of ceasefire
along the LoC, Pakistani troops on Sunday fired rocket-propelled
grenades and opened small arms firing on Indian posts in
Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

"Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire. They fired
RPGs and opened small arms firing on Indian posts in Banbat
forward area in Poonch sector," a senior Army officer of 16
Corps told a news agency.

The RPGs exploded away from our posts and there was no
casualty or injury to anyone in the firing and RPG blasts, he
said.

Despite provocation by the Pakistani troops by violating
ceasefire, Indian troops guarding the borderline observed calm
and did not retaliate, the officer said.

"The firing from the Pakistani side later stopped," he
said, adding that the Indian Army has registered a strong
protest with their Pakistani counterparts via hotline.
