Pak Army targets forward posts and villages along LoC in Poonch

JAMMU: The Pakistan Army on Sunday shelled forward posts and villages along the Line of Control in Poonch district, a defence spokesperson said.

There was no immediate report of any casualty in the Pakistani firing and shelling in Balakot and Mendhar sectors, he said.

“Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and shelling with mortars along LoC in Balakot and Mendhar sectors around 7 pm, prompting befitting retaliation by the Indian Army,” the spokesman said.

The cross-border firing between the two sides was on when last reports were received.  (AGENCIES)
