The Indian Army has foiled a major infiltration bid by terrorists after Pakistan violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Krishna Ghati sector in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on Friday. According to reports, Pakistan violated ceasefire for the second time on Friday morning at 11.45 am. Earlier, the Pakistani Rangers violated the ceasefire in the same area at about 2.30 am on Friday night. According to the Defence officials, while the Indian Army retaliated befittingly, one army jawan lost his life during a ceasefire violation. Further, it was reported that the terrorists managed to escape back to Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
Ahead of the media briefing by the delegation of Members of European Parliament who visited Kashmir on October 29, Pakistan Army on October 30 violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Machhil sector of the Kupwara district. A civilian identified as Mohammed Yusuf Khan (65) was killed in the ceasefire violation. Further, seven people among whom four were children have been injured in the attack. It was reported that the Indian Army gave a befitting response to the Pakistani aggression that they had started.
In another ceasefire violation, Pakistan once again resorted to its old tactics of targeting Army positions and civilian areas without any provocation from the Indian side. This happened at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was celebrating Diwali with Indian Army Jawans along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu on October 27.
Pakistan is continuing to attack civilians and army officials along the LoC. At least four civilians were injured in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the Drangiyari Tregam sector of Kupwara on October 25. On October 23, a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) posted in Jammu and Kashmir’s Nowshera sector was martyred after Pakistani troops resorted to yet another violation of ceasefire in an unprovoked attack using mortar shelling and small arms fire at various places along the Line of Control (LoC).
