Pakistani troops resorted to ceasefire violation yet again on Sunday evening. Reports say that Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars from 1645 hours in Nowshera sector along the Line of Control (LoC). Indian Army is giving a befitting response.
A top Army officer had earlier today dubbed Pakistan's action in the border areas as "cowardly and unprofessional".
"Since 19 Feb, Pakistan Army has been continuously carrying out ceasefire violations along the LoC in Uri sector. Displaying extreme cowardice and unprofessionalism, it has been targeting innocent villagers & causing damage to their houses through mortar shelling," Brigadier YS Ahlawat told the media earlier today.
"Indian Army has retaliated accurately on the Pak Army post.Villagers have been evacuated to govt school in Uri. Army has swung into action & provided immediate relief to villagers including food,medicine,drinking water & have provisioned sleeping bags in view of winter," he added.
Brigadier Ahlawat was referring to ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Uri sector on Thursday.
Pakistani troops on Thursday fired at Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir, prompting Indian soldiers to retaliate. The Pakistani troops had opened unprovoked firing at Indian posts in the Hajipeer area of the Uri sector in Baramulla district
