Pakistan, while issuing grand statements of peace talks with India, is playing its usual self along the border by indulging in continuous unprovoked ceasefire violations. Pakistan has again violated ceasefire along the LoC in Shahpur and Kerni sectors of Poonch district by resorting to heavy shelling with artillery and firing of small arms.
Jammu and Kashmir: Pakistan violated ceasefire by resorting to heavy shelling with artillery and firing of small arms in Shahpur & Kerni sectors of Poonch district at around 6 pm today. Indian Army retaliated. More details awaited

The ceasefire violations took place around 6 pm yesterday which were retaliated by the Indian Army. Pakistan has hardly missed a day without indulging in repetitive ceasefire violations ever since the Indian Air Force conducted air strikes in Balakot targeting the training camps of Pakistan based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad.
Until July in the last year alone, Pakistan had carried out the highest number of ceasefire violations in the past eight years counting more 1432 times. Hardly a week of this month has passed and Pakistan has already indulged in several reported instances of ceasefire violations along the Line of Control.
On March 6, the Indian army had issued a stern warning to Pakistan over the incessant attempts to target civilian and military posts. A statement by the army had stated that any further misadventure by Pakistan will be responded in a befitting manner with dire consequences.
On one hand Pakistan is playing the claims of taking action against terrorist organisations on its soil in the aftermath of Pulwama terrorist attack due to international pressure but on the other hand, it has been targetting Indian civilians and military installations near the LoC.
