Pakistan has begun a fresh round of ceasefire violations across the international border in the Jammu region. This time, 15 Indian posts came under fire from the Pakistan Rangers. One Border Security Force (BSF) jawan who was injured in the firing has succumbed to his injuries.
The latest ceasefire violations began when Pakistan Rangers opened fire last night on four BSF posts in the Hira Nagar and Samba sectors along the internaitonal border in the Jammu region. This triggered retaliatory fire from the Indian forces.
In the past week alone, two BSF jawan have died because in firing from Pakistan. Indian retaliatiory fire has killed five Pakistan Rangers. Apart from this, one civilian, a woman, has been killed and 10 others injured as a result of Pakistani fire, according to the BSF.
Ceasefire violations continue unabated, even as 50 to 60 militants are ready to infiltrate the border, according to BSF sources. Meanwhile most of border population in the Samba and Hira Nagar sectors have been evacuated and moved to safer places, to avoid any casualties.
