The sound of gunfire reverberated in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch sector early Friday morning as Pakistan violated the ceasefire, yet again forcing retaliatory firing from the Indian side.

As per reports, the Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars in Poonch sector along the Line of Control.

The Indian army too retaliated with heavy firing on Pakistani posts.

On Wednesday too, Pakistan had resorted to unprovoked firing on Indian positions in Poonch resulting in retaliatory fire by the Indian army.

Pakistan had even summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh over alleged ceasefire violations by Indian forces in which a woman was reportedly killed.

India and Pakistan entered into a ceasefire in 2003 along the LoC, which divides Jammu and Kashmir between the two countries.
