Pakistan continues ceasefire violation, targets Army posts and civilian areas with heavy artillery

The intense shelling and firing from across the border continued throughout the night in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district. In the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch, it started in the wee hours of Wednesday.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister’s theatrics over his ‘peace’ initiative has been proven farcical after Pakistan continues to violate the ceasefire along the LoC. The Pakistan Army on Wednesday targeted dozens of forward posts and villages with artillery guns along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri and Poonch districts.

Reports state that the Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively and the exchange of heavy fire caused panic among the border residents.

The intense shelling and firing from across the border continued throughout the night in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district. In Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch it started in the wee hours of Wednesday, army officials have confirmed.

However, there was no report of any casualty on the Indian side, officials were quoted saying. In an official statement, the Army has stated that any further misadventures from Pakistan will be responded in a befitting manner with dire consequences.

Pakistan had resorted to cross-border firing at Nowshera and Sunderbani in Rajouri and Krishna Ghati in Poonch on Tuesday as well.

Prior to this, Pakistani troops had on Monday, violated ceasefire by targeting forward posts and villages along the Line of Control in Akhnoor sector in Jammu, breaking a two-day lull in cross-border skirmishes, officials said.

Pre-disposed by its impulse, Pakistan has violated ceasefire for over 60 times along the LoC in Rajouri and Poonch in the past week, killing four civilians, including three members of a family and had left several injured.

Though the number of ceasefire violations by Pakistan in 2018 is almost double of what it was in 2017, the highest in a decade, there has been a recent spurt in ceasefire violations by Pakistan after India’s preemptive air strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp in Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on February 26 following the February 14 suicide bombing in Pulwama in which 40 CRPF personnel were brutally massacred.
