Jammu: Pakistani troops on Sunday targeted forward posts and villages along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district with mortar shells and gunfire in violation of the ceasefire, police said.
Indian troops guarding the LoC fired in retaliation and the firing between the two sides continued for nearly half-an-hour from 1300 hours, a police officer said.
He said there was no report of any casualty in the Pakistani firing and shelling in Khari Karmara area.
There has been a spurt in ceasefire violations along the LoC and the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir this year, resulting in the death of 26 people including 12 forces personnel.
