India ‘continues to violate ceasefire’ along LOC

LOC: Indian troops continued ceasefire violations in Nezapir, Pandu, Khanjar Munawar, Battal and Baghsar sectors along the Line of Control (LoC), said a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Monday.

There have been no casualties on Pakistan side during last 24 hours, according to the military’s media wing. Intermittent firing, however, “continues”.

Pakistani soldiers responded effectively to Indian fire and targeted cross-border posts.

The ISPR said that Pakistan armed forces continue to remain alert and vigilant.

Meanwhile, funeral prayers of Naik Khurram, who embraced martyrdom in Naikal Kotli sector on Saturday, was offered in DG Khan. He was buried with full military honour for defending the motherland.

Tensions escalated between Islamabad and New Delhi after the February 14 suicide attack in which a young man – a native of occupied Kashmir – rammed an explosives-laden car into an Indian paramilitary convoy, killing over 40 personnel in Pulwama district.

Following the Pulwama incident, the Indian Air Force (IAF) aircraft violated Pakistani airspace near the LoC and were chased away by Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jets on February 26.
