Srinagar: Pakistani troops on Sunday violated ceasefire by resorting to indiscriminate shelling and firing near the Line of Control (LoC) in Teetwal sector in north Kashmir district of Kupwara.
This is the first ceasefire violation by Pakistan troops since February this year. The Indian and Pakistani armies on February 25, 2020 had announced that they would cease firing across the LoC while recommitting themselves to a 2003 ceasefire agreement.
Official sources said Pakistani troops, violating 2003 ceasefire, resorted to unprovoked firing and shelling for about 10 to 15 minutes, targeting forward posts and villages on this side of the LoC in Teetwal area in Tanghdar sector. However, there was no report of any injury or damage to property on this side.
They said appropriate response was given by Indian soldiers in the area.
