Pak troops fire on LoC posts, launch rocket attacks
Jammu: Violating the ceasefire, Pakistani
troops fired rockets and used heavy machine guns on Indian
posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of
Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan troops fired several rockets followed by
firing by heavy machine guns on five Indian forward posts of
Kranti, Kranti 1, Kirpan, Ghora and Deep along LoC in Mendhar
sub-sector of Poonch district Monday night, Brigadier General
Staff (BGS) Gurdeep Singh said on Tuesday.
The indiscriminate firing and rocket attacks came from
Pakistan posts of Battal and Daku across LoC in Pakistan
Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
The firing began from 20:55 hrs last night and ended
at 00:15 hrs. "It is clear ceasefire violation by the
Pakistan troops," Singh said, adding that Indian troops have
lodged a strong protest with Pakistan counterparts today.
Indian soldiers retaliated with small arms, he said
adding that there was no casuality in the exchange of fire.
Pakistan has violated the 2003 ceasefire along the
border for the 11th time this year. The last ceasefire
violation took place on February 24 when Pakistani troops
fired rockets and opened indiscriminate firing on Indian posts
along International Border (IB) in Samba district and injured
a BSF jawan.
