Jammu (NVI): Pakistani troops today violated ceasefire along LoC in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir twice by resorting to small and heavy arms fire while targeting Shahpur, Kirni and Qasba sectors, defence officials said.

Pakistan army shelled the forward areas in Poonch in the morning by firing small arms and mortar shelling, they said.

At about 6 PM in the evening, Pakistan again targeted these areas, they said, adding that the Indian Army was retaliating befittingly.

Pakistan resorted to intense shelling post abrogation of Article 370 last year and continues with frequent unprovoked CFVs in both Kashmir and Jammu regions along LoC.
