"Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked shelling and firing along the LoC in Poonch", Defence Ministry sources said.

They used small arms, automatics and mortars. The firing started at 1.30 am. The Indian Army retaliated effectively and strongly.

The injured soldiers were shifted to hospital.

In this month, there have been 21 ceasefire violations by the Pakistani Army in Poonch and Rajouri districts besides a cross-LoC attack and two infiltration bids in which four people including three jawans have been killed.

On 26 June, the occasion of Eid-ul Fitr, the Pakistani Army had resorted to firing by small arms and automatic weapons and shelling of mortars along the LoC in Bhimbher Gali (BG) sector of Rajouri from 2015 hours till midnight.
