Kotli- Indian troops started heavy shelling  at the Line of Control (LoC) in Azad Kashmir today.

Indian Army, once again, carried out indiscriminate firing in Kotera sub-sector area near Kotli on the Line of Control (LoC).

According to the military sources, this is the second time that the Indian forces have violated the LoC in one week. In the recent incident of indiscriminate firing in Kotera sub-sector, fortunately no loss of life took place. In response, Pakistan Army retaliated with full force that compelled the Indian side to discontinue the firing. The last incidence of LoC violation occurred on April 25 this year  when the Pakistani and Indian troops exchanged fire on the LoC. The Indian forces had broken a three-month-long period of peace in the Poonch Sector by resorting to unprovoked firing, according to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
