RAWALPINDI – Indian security forces have once again resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control (LoC) in Khuiratta (Bhimber) Sector early Sunday morning, which was befittingly responded to by the Pakistan Army.

“Exchange of fire started at 4:30 am today and lasted till 7:00 am,” according to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

There were no reports of casualties from either side.

The tensions between arch-rival India and Pakistan have worsened after the attack on an Indian military camp in Uri inside India-held Kashmir on Sept 18, where around 20 Indian soldiers were killed.

Since then, India has resorted to the unprovoked firing numerous times.

On September 29, it falsely claimed of carrying out surgical strikes across LoC, allegations which Pakistan rejected vehemently.
