KASHMIR: In a violation of the ceasefire imposed on the Line of Control (LoC), unprovoked firing ensued from Indian Army in Azad Kashmir on Tuesday, Express News reported.

The forces in Lahore and Sialkot had already been alerted to the possibility of firing from the Indian side of the Indo-Pak border following incidents throughout the week.

The firing started at 9:20pm and it hadn't stopped till the filing of the report.

A day earlier, the Indian army had triggered an exchange of fire from both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) after violating ceasefire on three occasions, first near Sialkot and then twice near Kotli in the Nakial sector.

Clashes in recent weeks across the heavily militarised LoC, which divides the Himalayan territory between India and Pakistan, have raised the temperature between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

@Alter Ego:

Read Hamood-ur-Rehman commission report, read about kargill, read about Abottabad commission report. Opinion piece ona newspaper is not a fact, an investigative report by commission is.
