Heavy firing at India, Pakistan border continues
Jammu: Peace between India and Pakistan may remain a pipe dream for a long time to come. Despite Prime Minister Modi meeting his Pakistani counterpart there doesn’t seem to be any breakthrough.
Reports suggest that heavy firing started early Monday between the Indian and Pakistani troopers along the line of control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu region. “Pakistan army resorted to heavy unprovoked firing at our positions in Shahpur sector of the LoC around midnight,” a defence spokesman told media here.
He went on to add, “They are using small arms and automatic weapons to target our positions. Our troopers are effectively retaliating the firing”. Intermittent firing exchanges were going on in the area when last reports came in. On Saturday, five civilians were injured in the same area when Pakistan army resorted to indiscriminate, unprovoked firing.
