Pakistan has been using heavy artillery fire on International border and the Line of control. At least 20 people including women and children have been killed in heavy artillery firing by the Pakistan rangers in last 20 days.
However, the Indian forces are giving the befitting reply to Pakistan shelling and damaged scores of Pakistan’s posts by carrying huge damage to their side as well.
