Jammu/UNI: Pakistan troops on Thursday morning yet again violated the ceasefire by firing unprovoked along the Line of Control in Rajouri and Poonch districts of Jammu and Kashmir.

Defence spokesman here said that at about 9 am, Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with Small Arms and intense shelling with Mortars along LoC in Nowshera Sector of District Rajouri and Shahpur, Kirni and Qasba sectors in District Poonch.

"Indian Army retaliates befittingly to cross border firing," he added.

On Wednesday, Pakistan shelled the forward areas in these twin border districts.

Pakistan has been continuously violating the ceasefire since the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.
