Breaching the ceasefire treaty once again, India accuses Pakistan of targeting its soldiers in the Poonch District on Monday. Allegedly, Pakistani troops have attacked Indian soldiers for the fifth time in the last three days.
“Pakistan troops opened heavy firing with small arms, mortar shells and rockets on Indian forward posts along LoC in Poonch and Durga Battalion areas around 0150 hours. It was yet another ceasefire violation by Pakistan,” Defence Spokesman S N Acharya said.
“There was sniper firing from Pakistani side along the international border (IB) on three posts including Alfa Machial Border Out Post (BOP) area in Kanachak belt of Jammu district,” a senior BSF officer confirmed.
On the other hand, Pakistan has accused Indian army for unprovoked shelling. Concerned authorities maintain that Pakistan troops effectively responded to Indian firing.
