Unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Poonch sector, J&K

2 Civilians Killed In Pak Firing In Jammu And Kashmir's Poonch

Indian troops initiated unprovoked firing of small arms, heavy weapons and mortars along LoC in Chirikot and Satwal sectors.

"All Pakistan soldiers who were hit are from 24 Frontier Force unit deployed on the LoC opposite Chakka Da Bagh and Khaari Karmara area of Poonch district", he added. His two daughters Rubeena Kousar and Zahida Kousar suffered injuries in the incident.

Pakistani border forces effectively engaged the Indian positions and gave a befitting response, according to Pakistan Army's media cell.

He also said that two Pakistani bunkers were destroyed during the operation.

The military's media wing also released video footage showing the two bunkers being destroyed by Pakistan Army's precision artillery fire. It may be recalled that earlier a Territorial Army (TA) jawan and his wife were killed during firing and shelling by Pakistani troops.

The deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity and global human rights and humanitarian laws, said a foreign ministry statement. The fishermen were held for illegally fishing in Pakistani waters a year ago, said Muhammad Naseem Siddiqui, a government official.

The Indian Army retaliated to Pakistan's ceasefire violation on Saturday and destroyed its border post near the Line of Control in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
