I ndia responds as Pakistan fires artillery
There have been more than 3,000 ceasefire vip by Pakistan over the last eight months. This has been the most in 17 years.
The army of Pakistan have been firing artillery guns along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday. The Indian Army responded that this is leading to an increase of aggression and three soldiers lost their lives on a day in the bombarding.
The ceasefire violation began last night when Pakistan carried out an unprovoked firing in the Mankote and Krishna Ghat sectors. The army said that in the afternoon, Pakistan fired along the LoC in the Keran and Machhal sectors of the Kupwara district with artillery guns, mortars and other weapons.
The firing on Thursday by Pakistani troops, resulted in the death of two soldiers in the Nowgam sector of Kupwara distribution in North Kashmir. The injured soldiers were rescued.
This use of artillery guns by Pakistan creates a strain along the Line of Control which normally experiences diverse levels of machine gun fire and mortars before the long-ranged weapons are used.
Pakistan have been targeting villages in Poonch from quite a couple of days. Officials informed that a soldier was killed and two others, including an officer were bruised on September 5 due to the shelling by Pakistan along LoC in the Sunderbani sector. On September 2, a Junior Commissioned Officer was also killed in another ceasefire violation by Pakistan Army in the Keri sector of Rajouri.
India says that Pakistani troops often initiate this firing to help terrorists sneak into Jammu and Kashmir. The latest escalation in tension comes at a time when India is separately locked in a dangerous military confrontation with China along with the de-facto boundaries between the two countries.
