Army 'hammering and bleeding' Pak forces along LoC: Government sources

"Indian Army has been doing pro-active operations along the LoC due to ongoing ceasefire violations and due to reports of 180 to 200 terrorists waiting to cross to the south of the Pir Panjal ranges, which includes areas of Poonch, Rajouri, Mendhar", army sources said.

"Troops fired and the group of intruding terrorists was forced to withdraw back into the Pakistani side".

In a statement, the Prime Minister said such unprovoked and unethical acts have exposed the real face of India, which continues to violate Geneva Convention by targeting innocent school children. "A brief firing exchange took place between the troops and the terrorists". The students started screaming as there was no one present after which local residents came to their assistance.

In 2018, Indian forces carried out more than 150 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the Working Boundary, resulting in the death of nine innocent civilians, while injuring 40 others.

However, the violation of the truce has still been continuing.

Islamabad has been urging New Delhi to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, investigate the incidents of ceasefire violations, instruct Indian forces to respect the ceasefire in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC.

Following the incident, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh to condemn the constant ceasefire violations by the Indian forces along the Line of Control.
