India, Pakistan trade heavy fire along LoC in Poonch”

Jammu: Pakistani troops on Wednesday violated the ceasefire twice by firing and shelling along the International Border (IB) in Jammu district and the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch, prompting retaliation from the security forces.

"Pakistan violated ceasefire by resorting to firing at P-1and P-2 posts in Shahpur Sector of district Poonch", said a police official.

Indian Army is retaliating strongly and effectively to the provocation.

Apart from LoC, Pakitan resorted to ceasefire violation along the worldwide border in Pargwal sector also during the day.
