Jammu, September 7

The Pakistan Army on Saturday targeted forward posts and villages in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district with firing from small arms and mortar shelling, ending nearly a week-long lull along the Line of Control (LoC), a defence spokesman said.

The small arms firing and mortar shelling from across the border started in the Krishna Ghati sector around 7.45 am, the spokesman said.

He said the Army is retaliating and the cross-border shelling between the two sides was going on when the reports last came in.

However, there was no report of any casualty on the Indian side, the spokesman said. PTI
