Indian, Pakistani troops trade fire on LoC

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Jammu: Heavy shelling and firing exchanges between Indian and Pakistani troops began on Monday on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, a defence official said.

“The Pakistan army resorted to indiscriminate firing and shelling on our positions in Krishna Ghati and Mendhar sectors,” the official said.

“They first initiated small arms and automatic gunfire, but later used mortars.”

“The firing is going on and our forces are effectively retaliating,” he added.

Reports from Mendhar said some cattle were injured as shells fired from across the LoC landed in civilian areas.
