Ceasefire violation by Pakistan at Uri

Two days after 18 soldiers were killed in terror attack in Uri near Line of Control LoC, Pakistan troops opened fire at Indian posts, says Army.

 
Pakistani troopers resorted to heavy gunfire with small and automatic fire arms from across the border. No damage was caused to Indian posts," says a media report.
 
Firing targeted at Indian posts in Lachhipora and Boniyar villages near LoC, the source said. Report also added that the fire was returned with equal calibre weapons.
 
The exchange of fire is continuing since past one hour after it started. Pakistan is often accused of firing at Indian posts to give cover to infiltrators.
 
Firing violates the 2003 ceasefire agreement between India and Pakistan along the international boundary and LoC.
 
The border skirmish came as New Delhi and Islamabad are locked in a bitter diplomatic war of words following the Uri terror attack, which India has blamed on militants from Pakistan.
 
Pakistan has denied the allegations even as India claimed to have clinching evidence to support its claims.
