Pakistan, according to army sources, is using long range 120 mm mortars and automatic weapons to target Indian positions and villages at the Line of Control in Rajouri district. The Army says it is giving a fitting reply to Pakistani aggression.
Indian and Pakistani troops traded heavy fire on Saturday along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.
“Pakistan Army initiated indiscriminate firing and shelling on our positions on the LoC in the Naushera sector,” Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta told Media Sources.
They are also using small arms, automatics and mortars, he said.
Fourteen families from border villages in the Naushera sector left their homes on Friday following indiscriminate shelling by Pakistani troops.
This is the second major ceasefire violation in Nowshera this week, earlier a woman was killed and her husband was injured in Pakistani firing.
