For the second consecutive day, the Pakistan army violated ceasefire along the Line of Control in north Kashmir’s Uri sector, the Army said.

Pakistani troops opened fire at Indian posts in the Kamalkote area of Uri at around 11 am. The Army retaliated to the firing.

“There was a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the Uri sector today and our forces retaliated strongly,” an official said, adding that the exchange of fire continued for over an hour. “There was no report of any causalities from our side,” he said.

On Saturday, an Army porter was killed and a teenage girl was injured in Pakistani firing in the Kamokote sector. The truce violation has triggered panic among the residents in Uri.

Pakistan has violated ceasefire over 600 times in the state this year. This is almost double than last year and highest in a single year in the past one decade.
