Jammu, Feb 14: In yet another instance of ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops have reportedly fired rockets on Indian posts in Poonch district on Saturday, Feb 13.

According to a senior army officer, Pakistani troops from a forward post fired several rockets on three Indian posts along the LoC in Krishnaghati area of Poonch sector.

"The three posts targeted included Kranti, Kranti 1 and Kripan posts along the LoC," the officer was quoted by news agency as saying.

He added that the rocket attacks were followed by heavy machine gun fire.

"The rockets exploded away from the posts prompting Indian troops to fire in retaliation which resulted in an exchange of fire that is still on," the officer said.

"This is a clear violation of the ceasefire as firing and rockets came from the Pakistani posts," he added.
