Pakistan Army Resorts to Firing Again on LoC, Third Time 3 Days

Jammu, Oct 18: Indian defence sources have alleged that Pakistan Army has again resorted to unprovoked overnight firing at Indian positions on the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday night at 8:55 pm using automatic rifles and small arems, not shelling though.

Quoting sources, IANS reported,”Pakistan Army started unprovoked firing at our positions in Hamirpur sector of Poonch district at 8.55 p.m. Friday using automatics and small arms… Pakistan firing was effectively retaliated by our side using same calibre weapons.

Firing exchanges continued in the area for nearly an hour.” Indian defence sources said, “No casualty or damage has been reported from our side.” For the third time in three days, Pakistan army on the LoC in Hamirpur sector has resorted to firing, while Pakistan Rangers began the border conflict on October 6 with unprecedented peace-time shelling of civilian habitations on the international border in Jammu, violating the ceasefire agreement.

The ceasefire violations continued since Oct. 6 to other areas in Samba and Kathua districts and the Pakistani Army too joined the border firing violating the ceasefire on the LoC in the Poonch district later.

So far, 8 people have been killed and 62 injured in border shelling of civilian habitations in the Jammu region and more than 30,000 residents from the border villages have been evacuated to relief camps away from the areas vulnerable to Pakistan shelling along the international border in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts.

While Pakistan knocked at the United Nations’ door for interference, it was flatly rejected by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.

  1. The time has come for Pakistan to develop HYDROGEN and NEUTRON BOMBS.
    Currently Pakistan is powerful enough to give India a very tough time, but with THERMONUCLEAR BOMBS Pakistan will have the capability to EVAPORATE INDIA not with the use of an arsenal, rather with few FUSION BOMBS from its arsenal.
    India has no choice but to sit with Pakistan and resolve J&K issue peacefully, otherwise India should be ready to be chopped out piece by piece from head to toe.
    Pakistan though will not start a full fledged war against India, rather will bleed India to death, a slow and very, very painful death.
