Pakistan again violates ceasefire

Jammu: Pakistani troops fired at Indian positions in Mendhar sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district late yesterday night, a defence spokesman said today.

“Pakistani troops again violated the bilateral ceasefire by resorting to unprovoked firing at our positions in Mendhar sector of the LoC last night (Monday),” the spokesman said.

“The Pakistani firing started around 10.30 p.m. and our troops responded to the enemy fire,” he said.

On Aug 11, Pakistanis fired at Indian positions in Digwar village of Poonch district, and the exchange of fire continued for more than six hours.

On Aug 6, specialist troops of the Pakistan Army killed five Indian soldiers in Chakan-Da-Bagh sector of the LoC in Poonch district.

A bilateral ceasefire agreement was signed by India and Pakistan in November 2003.
