on Tuesday twice violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control (
) in J&K’s
“The first breach of truce took place around 6.30am, when Pakistan resorted to unprovoked firing of small arms and mortar shelling along the LoC in Poonch’s Mankote sector, attracting a befitting retaliation from the Indian troops,” Jammu-based defence spokesperson Lt Col Devender Anand said.
“The second violation came around 7pm along the LoC in the district’s Kerni sector, to which the Indian Army retaliated effectively. No injury or damage was suffered by own side,” Lt Col Anand said.
The cross-border fire exchange continued intermittently till the filing of this report.
