LoC calm, forest fire triggers mine explosions

The Line of Control in Mendhar sub division was  calm on Tuesday after two consecutive days of cross border firing on Sunday and Monday.

Official sources said no fresh incident of firing took place along LoC.

“The calm was uneasy as there is apprehension of resumption of firing,” sources said. Meanwhile, due to forest fire that erupted in some areas close to LoC as a result of Monday’s shelling, forest fire broke out which led to more than half a dozen land mine explosions spreading panic in the area.
