"From 10 AM, Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation in Noushera sector of Rajouri district by targeting our positions with mortar bombs and small arms fire", an army officer said.

He said the army was giving a "befitting response" to the ceasefire violation from the Pakistani side.
"The army is giving a befitting response to the Pakistani army," the officer said.

There was no report of any loss of life or the property on the Indian side as the firing from both the sides was still going on.
