Pakistan Violets Ceasefire at Rajouri District in Jammu & Kashmir


On Wednesday, Pakistan again violated ceasefire in two places on the forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district today, shelling mortar bombs and started firing. No wounds or harms have taken place. A spokesperson of the army said that the Indian army is retaliating firmly and efficiently. “Pakistan Army indiscriminately fired small arms and 80 mm mortars from 0500 hours to 0545 hours in the Bhimbher Gali sector along the Line of Control,” the spokesperson said.


The officer said that the Indian army is only targeting Pakistani posts. “Unfortunately, Pakistan is violating ceasefire in civilian areas. We are giving full help to our citizens,” he added. Over the last few weeks, one citizen has died and seven others have been injured in the ceasefire violations. Three ceasefire violations took place on June 12, with the Pakistani army attacking Indian posts in the Krishna Ghati sector next to the Line of Control in Poonch. Over the last four days in Jammu region, there have been eight ceasefire violations. This takes the number of ceasefire violations in the region to 12 since the start of June in areas close to the Line of Control.


The ceasefire violations from Pakistan are regularly implied as cover fire for terrorists attempting to infiltrate into India. Terrorists have done a series of attacks since Monday evening. Over a time of four hours on Tuesday evening, four attacks took place crosswise over Kashmir in which 13 security personnel were injured. Near about 6 other attacks have occurred since Monday evening.
