The Pakistan army on Saturday (7 March) initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation by shelling and firing on forward posts and villages along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, reports Times of India.

According to the report, the firing by Pakistani troops started at 1.30 pm. The Indian Army is giving a befitting reply to the ceasefire violation.

The cross-border shelling was going on when last reports were received, said a defence spokesperson.

Earlier on Wednesday (4 March), the Central government had informed the Lok Sabha that as many as 646 incidents of ceasefire violations along India-Pakistan border took place in the first two months of this year.

It should be noted that the Indian Army had recently launched anti-tank guided missiles and artillery shells at Pakistani army positions opposite Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara sector. This action was a direct retaliation against the Pakistan Army’s persistent ceasefire violations aimed at pushing in terrorists across the Line of Control (LoC), ANI has reported.
