Pakistan used small arms and mortars on Wednesday to target Indian positions along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district.

Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Devender Anand said that at about 6.10 p.m. on Wednesday, Pakistan initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and shelling with mortars along the LoC in Shahpur and Kirni sectors in Poonch district.

The spokesman said the Indian army retaliated befittingly.
