India resorts to ‘unprovoked firing and shelling’ in Sialkot
The Indian forces resorted to fire shells along with unprovoked firing into the Pakistan territory in an attempt to target check posts of Chenab Rangers and nearby villages. However, retaliatory fire from Chenab Rangers pushed back the Indian forces.
No loss of life was reported in the incident. The villages targeted by Indian forces were Charwah, Dhamal and Jarwaal.
In December last year, the two countries had pledged to uphold the 2003 ceasefire accord which was left in tatters by repeated violations that year. The truce breaches had put the bilateral peace dialogue on hold.
