JAMMU: Pakistan Army again resorted to unprovoked overnight firing at Indian positions on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu region using mortars and automatic weapons, an official said Saturday.

"Pakistan Army violated the ceasefire at Balakote in Poonch district during the night," defence spokesman Colonel Manish Mehta said here.

"Pakistan started unprovoked firing at 8.30 p.m. using small arms, mortars and automatics," he said.

The Indian side retaliated appropriately and no casualty has been reported on our side so far. The firing exchanges continued in the area for nearly an hour, the spokesman added.
