Ceasefire violations by Pakistan

Pakistan has once again violated the ceasefire order. Pakistani troops targeted Indian posts and civilian areas on Saturday. Attacks by mortar bombs and heavy machine guns happened along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir‘s Akhnoor tehsil.

The attack started in the early hours of Saturday and lasted about 3 hours. Thankfully there have been no loss of life or injury to anyone in the firing. The Indian troops posted in that area have effectively retaliated against the attacking Pakistani troops. Defense sources confirmed the violation by Pakistani troops.

According to sources, the attacks were heavy with many explosives used. Pakistani troops used many mortar bombs, RPGs, heavy machine guns and even small arms. Using the array of their weapons, they attacked at various positions along the LoC in Pallanwala sector and Chamb area of Akhnoor tehsil today.

According to the police, the Pakistani troops attacked Badoo and Chanoo hamlets in particular. They said that the villagers who were residing in these areas were evacuated from near the LoC to safer places.

However, civilians were put in risk in this attack. Some of the residents who were evacuated from the border returned to their home to take care of their cattle. At that time, the Pakistani troops tried to target these civilians by using heavy firing on them.

Police confirm that few houses in Badoo village were also hit by the bullets from Pakistani troops. This incident makes it the fifth time that Pakistan violated the 2004 ceasefire agreement along LoC in J&K in the past four days.

After the surgical strikes by India conducted on September 29 destroyed several terror launch pads in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Pakistan has been doing cross-border firing.

Pakistani troops used small arms firing along LoC in Pallanwala, Chaprial, Samnam areas of Akhnoor sector of Jammu district during Friday night.
