Pakistan-Flag-HD-Wallpapers-1JAMMU: Pakistani troops have violated the ceasefire 99 times along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, targeting Indian posts and civilian areas, after the surgical strike by the army on PoK-based terrorist launching pads.
“Pakistani troops have violated the ceasefire along LoC in Jammu and Kashmir 99 times after the surgical strike by Indian Army troops on terror launch pads in PoK,” said a senior Army officer on Friday.
The officer said there have been 83 ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along the LoC in Jammu region falling under 16 Corps area.
As many as 16 ceasefire violations have been recorded along the LoC in Kashmir region falling under 15 corps area, he said. The worst-ever Pakistani shelling targeting civil population took place on November 1 when eight persons, including two children and four women, were killed and 22 others injured along the IB and the LoC in five sectors of J&K, forcing Indian troops to give befitting reply by destroying 14 Pakistani posts and killing two of their troopers. The state government had closed over 400 schools along the International Border (IB) and the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu region in wake of the ongoing heavy cross-border firing. A total of 18 people, including 12 civilians, were killed and more than 83 suffered injuries in Pakistani shelling and firing along IB and LoC in Jammu.

LoC calm for second day
Jammu: The Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan, which has been volatile over the last several weeks, remained calm for the second day on Friday, with no firing of shelling taking place from across.
“There has been no firing or shelling by Pakistan along LoC and IB today,” a senior officer said.
While there has been no shelling or firing along International Border since November one, there has been no shelling since on Thursday along LoC.
On November 2, two people were injured when Pakistani troops resorted to shelling and firing along the LoC in Rajouri and Poonch districts. The preceding day saw the worst-ever Pakistani shelling along the IB and Loc targeting civil population, killing 8 people, including 2 children and 4 women, and injuring 22 others.
However, even as there was no firing or shelling along the frontier, the border dwellers refuse to return to their homes because of the looming fears. Officials said most of the border people are staying in camps and they do not want to return to their border homes in view of threat to their lives from Pakistani firing and shelling.
They fear that this is just a lull before another round of hostilities, the officials said.
