The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) resorted to bouts of unprovoked firing in Sialkot’s Charwah sector on Wednesday, according to ISPR. 

Indian troops targeted the civil population in villages along the working boundary.

Aside from firing, the BSF also resorted to shelling after which the Chenab Rangers responded effectively.

No deaths or injuries have been reported.

“We want peace with India, but we will retaliate when there is a violation,” said Director General Inter-Services Public Relations Maj General Asim Bajwa.

The latest bout of firing comes two days after Pakistan expressed its willingness for early restoration of ‘peace and tranquility’ along the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary with India, as the two countries on Sunday again traded fire after a two-day hiatus.

Over a dozen Pakistani civilians have been killed, while many other injured since the clashes erupted between the two nuclear armed-neighbours on October 2. Both countries accuse each other for triggering the latest hostilities.

    Pakistan should have made peace with India when PM Singh was in office…Singh was a meek and timid one who want to leave a legacy of peace so gave everything Pakistan wanted…talks, talks, talks, inspite of attacks on embassies, Mumbai, cross border firing to push terrorists, arms, drugs, fake currencies, etc

    It will not continue anymore so do not even try and seek genuine peace for the sake of alleviation of poverty in Pakistan and also in India…

    I doubt that anything will change as long as Army and its COAS runs Pakistan instead of elected government…

    Pakistan should not mess up with India. We already lost Banglasdesh and still regretting that. don’t listen to the army. It makes its own butter bread by fooling people. India army has huge ammunition and money power to fire shells continuously if we infiltrate them.
