Srinagar: At least 8 Pakistani killed and 32 Border Security Force (BSF) posts along the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir have been retaliating to ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops since last night.
According to reports, the Indian troops in a befitting reply gunned down around eight Pakistan Army personnel across the border in Shakargarh and Sialkot areas of Pakistan. The cross-border fire is still being reported from Jammu districts – Arnia, Suchetgarh, RS Pura, Pargwal, Kana Chak village, Gharkhal (Akhnoor).
One civilian caught in the cross-fire has sustained injuries in the Kana Chak village. The Pakistani rangers are using mortar shells to target BSF posts and even civilian areas.
Unrelenting Pakistan continues to violate ceasefire across the international border.
The heavy firing has been continuing since Friday morning, and has claimed four lives so far in two days. The firing has been taking place in RS Pura, Arnea and Ramgarh sectors.
India on the other hand has been retaliating to Pakistan firing and has reportedly led to major loss to Pak property. The same also killed four Pakistani personnel.
Pakistan’s unprovoked firing killed two civilians and two army personnel yesterday. The same injured around 24 people residing in the target areas, as Pakistan deliberately targeted residential areas of Indian Territory.
Heavy mortar shelling and firing is making it very difficult for the localities to survive. The same has made people remain inside their houses as the firing is still underway.
Also, all the schools which fall within 5kms of these areas have also been shut down. Also people residing in the villages have been asked to remain indoors and be careful.
