Pak again violates ceasefire on Friday

 Jammu: For the fifth consecutive day on Friday, Pakistan resorted to unprovoked firing and shelling on the Line of Control (LoC) in J&K's Poonch district.

Defence ministry spokesman Colonel Devender Anand said at about 6.30 am on Friday, Pakistan again initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and shelling with mortars along the LoC in Balakote sector of Poonch district.

The spokesman said Indian Army is retaliating befittingly.

On Thursday, Pakistan had violated the ceasefire in Mendhar and Balakote sectors. Friday's ceasefire violation is the fifth consecutive violation during the last five days.

This year Pakistan has violated the ceasefire on the LoC over 2,720 times during which 21 civilians have been killed and 94 others injured.

On August 1, an Army soldier, Sepoy Rohin Kumar, was killed in Pakistani firing on the LoC in Rajouri district.
