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.
