Pakistan had violated the ceasefire in Sundarbani sector in J&K on Friday as well. However, the Indian Army effectively retaliated the ceasefire violation killing 12 Pakistani soldiers and two Pak Army officials. Pakistan had violated the ceasefire along the LoC a day before also in J&K’s Rajouri district, which had claimed the life of one Army personnel.

Pakistan has been targeting Army posts and civilian areas along the Line of Control despite Indian Army’s warning not to target civilian areas. Earlier this month Pakistani Army employed heavy artillery to target civilian areas in Krishna Ghati and Sundarbani sectors which was strongly retaliated by the Indian Army.

Multiple unprovoked ceasefire violations have been carried out by Pakistan since the Balakot air strikes carried out by the Indian Air Force on the Jaish-e-Mohammad training camps after the Pulwama terror attack.
