Srinagar: Pakistani soldiers shelled forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch region of Jammu and Kashmir for the second back to back day on Tuesday, authorities said.

“At about 7:45 am on Tuesday, Pakistan started unmerited truce infringement by discharging from little arms and shelling mortars along the LoC in Mankote area of Poonch region,” a guard representative said.

“The Indian Army is fighting back in a befitting way,” he included.

On Monday, the Pakistani Army abused the truce and turned to little arms discharging and mortar shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in Mankote region and on last Friday they shot in Sunderbani-Nowshera segment harming six security staff.

There were a sum of 646 episodes of truce infringement along the Indo-Pakistan International Border (IB) just as the Line of Control (LoC) between January 1 and February 23 this year, Minister of State for Defense Shripad Naik told Parliament in March. More than 3,200 truce infringement by Pakistan troops were recorded in 2019.
