Pakistan on Thursday again violated ceasefire along the Line Of Control (LoC) in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir and targetted forward posts along the LoC. This is the seventh consecutive day that Pakistan has violated the 2003 Ceasefire Agreement by targeting forward posts drawing strong retaliation from India.

The Defence PRO informing about the ceasefire said, ‘At about 0600 hours on Thursday, Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by shelling with mortars and firing of small arms along the LoC in Krishna Ghati sector”. “The Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively”, the official added.

Pakistan violated ceasefire at 6 am today in Krishna Ghati sector along the Line of Control in Poonch district. Indian Army retaliated effectively. Firing stopped around 7 am, reported ANI.

In view of the prevailing Indo-Pak Tension, Authorities have ordered temporary closure of Schools/Institutions in 5km radius along the Line of Control in Rajouri and Poonch District close to International Borders.

Authorities have asked dwellers to remain inside their homes and not move outside in the view of prevailing Indo-Pak Tension and shelling by Pakistan.

The year 2018 had witnessed the highest number of ceasefire violation, numbering 2,936 by Pakistani troops, in the last 15 years along the Indo-Pak border. Pakistan continues to violate the 2003 ceasefire agreement with India despite repeated calls for restraint and adherence to the pact during flag meetings between the two sides.

The Latest Ceasefire Violation comes amidst the escalating tension between India and Pakistan. A day after the Indian air strike on a terror camp in Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir saw heightened military activity on Wednesday, with Pakistani jets violating the Indian air space and dropping some bombs in Rajouri sector after which one of their fighters was shot down.

Indian Air Force on Tuesday carried out unprecedented Air Strikes across LoC destroying Balakot JeM Terror Camp. As per reports, 12 Mirage 2000 jets took part in the operation that dropped 1000 kgs of Bomb across LoC in early hours of the Tuesday, Feb 26 completely destroying the Terror Camps. Though Pakistan hasn’t acknowledged the attack, however, countries across the world have lined up in Indian support asking Pakistan to put a check on terror camps within the country.
