Jammu: Pakistan has yet again violated ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch sector and Chakkan da Bagh area near LoC where the LoC trade centre is located. The violation took place at 11:30 am in the morning, news agency ANI reported. On Tuesday, Pakistan violated the ceasefire in Akhnoor sector at around 3:20 pm onwards. However, Indian army is retaliating effectively.
There has been a spurt in ceasefire violations by Pakistan after India’s preemptive air strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camp in Balakot on February 26 following the February 14 Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.
Last week, amid continuous ceasefire violations by Pakistan, Indian Army on Wednesday warned it ‘not to target civilian areas’. The Army said that situation along the Line of Control (LoC) is relatively calm after that, however, the ceasefire violations continue.
Meanwhile, Pakistan army on Wednesday targeted dozens of forward posts and villages with artillery guns along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri and Poonch districts, officials said.
The intense shelling and firing from across the border continued throughout the night in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district, while it started in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch in the early hours of Wednesday, they said.
