The Pakistan Army has violated the ceasefire across the Line of Control that has been in effect since 2003 for the second time in a month.
Pakistani forces fired seven to ten rounds of small arms gunfire in the Poonch-Rajouri area near Saujian and Kopra at 1045 hrs today. No casualties are reported.
This comes after Pakistani forces violated the ceasefire on May 9, firing mortars at Indian positions on the Line of Control.
Indian troops did not retaliate to the ceasefire violation. Sources in the Indian Army told StratPost, “This is the sort of thing that they do when they want to facilitate infiltration of terrorists into the state. They start firing when they want to divert attention or to provoke a retaliation from our troops so they can figure out the positions of the patrols. It’s a probing tactic.”
