Pakistan once again violated ceasefire and targeted Indian posts and civilian areas with mortar shells and heavy machine guns along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Akhnoor tehsil.

The firing started early Saturday morning at 3:30 am and went on till 6:30 am. However, Indian troops were able to effectively ward of the attacks with zero casualties.

Deccan Chronicle quoted a source  saying: “There was heavy shelling of mortar bombs, RPGs and heavy machine guns and small arms firing on forward positions along the LoC in Pallanwala sector and Chamb area of Akhnoor tehsil today,”

According to the police, Pakistani troops opened fire on Badoo and Chanoo settlements, with bullets piercing through few houses.

“Villagers residing along the LoC were evacuated and shifted to safer places,” a police official said.

Reportedly, Pakistan has increased cross border firing after the Indian army carried out surgical strikes to destroy terrorist camps across the Pakistan border on Sep 29.
