Pak troops targeted border posts in Poonch: Army

Jammu: Pakistani troops targeted forward Indian posts along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district overnight, drawing retaliation from the Army, a senior army officer said.

“Pakistan troops resorted to firing overnight on forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Hamirpur sector of Poonch district,” he said.

Army troops retaliated, he said, adding there was no loss of life or injury to anyone in the firing.

The Hamirpur and Sabzian sectors in Poonch have been targeted by Pakistan troops for the past three days, allegedly to facilitate infiltration from across the border. (PTI)
