Pakistan troops violated the ceasefire twice by firing along the LoC in Bhimbher Gali and Balakote sectors of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday morning. This drew retaliation from the Indian Army. This firing by Pakistan troops was totally unprovoked. In the past 11 days, this has been the fifth such ceasefire violation. An Indian Army soldier was killed on March 9 during such unprovoked firing along the Line of Control in Poonch sector.
