Indian border forces violated on Thursday the Line of Control (LoC), days after the unprovoked firing injured four women.
“Indian unprovoked firing along LoC in Tander and Khuiratta sector today,” a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said. “Pakistan Army troops effectively responded to Indian firing.”
Similarly on February 13, three army troops were killed as Indian forces violated the ceasefire in Thoob sector near Bhimber.

According to the military’s media wing, Indian forces committed at least 178 ceasefire violations along the LoC and Working Boundary in 2016, killing 19 civilians and injuring 80 others.
Army chief General Qamar Bajwa, on his visit to the border on February 21, termed the violations an attempt to distract Pakistan Army from its fight against terrorism.
