Pakistan violates ceasefire in Noushera sector

In yet another ceasefire violation, the Pakistan Army targeted Indian Army positions with mortar and small arms fire in Noushera sector of Rajouri district on Tuesday. The Indian army is setting up to promptly respond to the situation. Read on to find out more details.

According to an army officer, Pakistan army has resorted to starting ceasefire violation despite being unprovoked. The attacks started from 10 Am in the Noushera sector of Rajouri district. Pakistani troops attacked several positions of Indian army with mortar bombs and small arms fire.

The army officer said that the Indian army is now planning to give a proper response that fits the attack from the Pakistani side which violated the ceasefire between two countries.

So far there has been no report of loss of life or property on the Indian side. Both sides are firing at each other and the fight is ongoing. However, another attack from Pakistan rangers the day before resulted in the death of a 6-year-old boy and a BSF Jawan. The shelling from the Pakistani side in that attack resulted in injuries to 10 people including 8 civilians. The Pakistan Rangers targeted 25 Border out Posts near the International Border.

Ever since the Indian army carried out surgical strikes inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir and destroyed terror launch pads, the Pakistani side committed more than 40 ceasefire violations. The Indian army retaliated with surgical strikes on terror camps after the attack on army camp in Uri on September 18.

After the attack on October 23, Indian forces lodged their protest against unprovoked ceasefire violations. However, Pakistan also lodged a protest with the United Nations Military Observers group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) and said that India resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control and the Working Boundary in the Bhimber and Chaprar sectors.
