Srinagar: The armies of India and Pakistan Thursday traded gunfire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, army officials said.
They said that Pakistan troops fired small arms and automatics and targeted Indian posts in Khari Karmara area.
“Our troops effectively retaliated to the unprovoked ceasefire violation. Firing exchanges started at around 4.30 a.m. and continued till 6.30 a.m. No casualty or damage was reported from our side,” they said.
Cross-LoC shelling has increased in the past one month in Rajouri and Poonch districts.
