Srinagar/Jammu: Pakistani troops on Thursday violated the ceasefire twice along the Line of Control (LoC) by opening fire in Naugam sector and Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

This is the third ceasefire violation by Pakistan in two days.

 

"Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing on Indian posts in Naugam sector around 7 am," an Army official said in Srinagar.

He said the Pakistani troops used small fire arms and mortars but there were no reports of any casualty. The Indian troops exercised restraint and have not retaliated so far, he added.

The second ceasefire violation took place in Mendhar sector on Thursday.

A senior police officer in Jammu said, "There was firing from across the border on forward areas along the LoC in Balnoie belt of Mendhar in the district around 4.30 am."

 

There were no casualties, he added.

On Wednesday, Pakistani troops had targeted Indian positions with small firearms along the LoC in Sabzian belt of Poonch district.

Two days after the terror attack in Uri, on September 20, Pakistani troops had violated ceasefire in the same sector of Kashmir, targeting Indian army positions with small firearms.

Pakistani Army again pounded Indian positions with 120 mm mortar bombs and firing along the LoC in Poonch district on September 6.
