JAMMU: Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire again by firing on forward posts along the Line of  Control (LoC) in Poonch district, leaving a jawan injured. This is the fifth such incident in the last 72 hours.

"Pakistani troops resorted to firing on forward posts along the LoC in Poonch at 0945 hours", an army official said today. In the firing, an Army jawan suffered injuries and has been hospitalised. Yesterday, Pakistani troops had resorted to night-long firing and mortar shelling targeting six Border Out Posts (BoPS) and some villages along Indo-Pak border in Jammu district.

They used small arms and also fired 82 mm mortar shells targeting BoPs in the sector triggering panic among villagers located along the borderline. One BSF jawan was killed in Pakistani firing along LoC in Nougam sector in Kashmir valley on Sunday night.
