Kenny Thornton | 13 June, 2017, 04:32

India said the Pakistan army resorted to "indiscriminate firing and shelling" on Indian positions in Krishna Ghati and Mendhar sectors.

Pakistani troops resorted to firing and shelling on forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border in Rajouri and Samba districts of Jammu and Kashmir today, prompting Indian troops to retaliate. He added that the firing is still on.

Manish Mehta, spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence spoke to ANI, Pakistan have been using heavy mortars, RCL guns, RPGs and heavy automatics in its ceasefire violations.

A senior Army officer said that troops are on high alert along the LoC after inputs that 250 militants were waiting on the launch pads in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir for infiltration.

"The Pakistani troops violated ceasefire with small arms, rocket projectile grenades, recoilless rifles and mortars around 8.45 am in Lam sector along the LoC".

And that's just on offense. "Yeah, it's like déjà vu, except obviously Draymond being here is very helpful", Klay Thompson said. The reason it's 3-1 though, is the immediate concern. "You have to give them credit for how they played", Durant said.

COAS hailed Kashmiris on both sides of the LOC for their determination against Indian brutalities and reiterated that Pakistan shall continue its support for right of self determination to our Kashmiri brothers in IOK.

The Pakistani troops had on Sunday also breached border ceasefire thrice. However, he said the situation was under control and there were no reports of any casualty. It further said that the Indian firing also caused injuries to three other Civilians including 30-year-old Muhammad Shabir, 35-year-old Shumaila khurshid and 14-year-old Hafsa Shabbir.

"If Pakistan gives India evidence on Uri, Pathankot and other attacks, it will be against its policy of sponsoring terrorism and supporting stone pelters in Jammu & Kashmir to destabilise India".

He said a huge cache of arms and ammunition was recovered from their possession.
