Pakistan violates ceasefire in RS Pura

Pakistani Rangers on Thursday (July 16) indulged in heavy firing and mortar shelling on five border outposts and some villages in Jammu district which left four persons injured, a day after a woman was killed in the ceasefire violations prompting India to lodge protest with Pakistan. BSF troops retaliated “effectively” to the Pakistani firing which came ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheduled visit to Jammu tomorrow. “Pakistani Rangers resorted to small arms firing and mortar shelling along IB in R S Pura sector of Jammu district since 0115 hours today,” a BSF officer said. They targeted five border outposts (BoPs) and some civilian areas in R S Pura and Tawi forward belts, he said adding that Pakistani Rangers fired 81 mm mortar shells around 0350 hours.
