Srinagar: India and Pakistan troops Thursday exchanged heavy gunfire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Macchil sector of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district, two days after trading fire in Tangdhar sector of the district.
“On June 18, in the afternoon hours, Pakistan initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation (CFV) along the LoC in Macchil Sector by firing mortars and other weapons,” army officials said.
The officials said the Indian Army gave a befitting response to the ceasefire violation.
There were no casualties reported in the incident.
Last week, a woman was killed and two other people were injured as India and Pakistan troops traded heavy gunfire in Uri sector of Baramulla district prompting district authorities to evacuate the villagers towards the safer places.
