Pakistan violates ceasefire for 6th consecutive day, resorts to mortar shelling in Poonch
Pakistani army violated ceasefire for the sixth consecutive day on Wednesday, resorting to firing and heavy mortar shelling on forward posts along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.
This comes hours after Indian Army destroyed five Pakistani posts along the Line of Control in J&K on Tuesday night in a befitting retaliation to firing from across the border.
On Wednesday, Pakistan troops resorted to heavy mortar shelling and small arms firing on forward posts and civilian areas along the LoC in Mendhar, Balakote and Krishnagati sub-sectors in Poonch district since 7pm, PTI quoted officials as saying. Indian troops retaliated strongly, they added.
There was night-long heavy firing and mortar shelling along LoC in most areas in Jammu, Rajouri and Poonch districts on Tuesday which came after the Indian Air Force carried out strikes on a Jaish-e-Mohammed training camp in Balakot in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.
All schools and educational institutes remained closed in a 5-km radius along the LoC in Rajouri and Poonch districts on Wednesday. Authorities have ordered a temporary closure of educational institutions in a 5-km radius along the LoC in Rajouri and Poonch districts on Thursday too.
They have asked all the border dwellers to remain inside their homes and to not move outside in view the apprehension of the shelling by Pakistan.
