For the third consecutive day on Thursday Pakistan resorted to unprovoked in three sectors of the Line of Control (LoC) in J&K's Poonch district.

Colonel Devender Anand, defence ministry spokesman said at about 9 a.m. Pakistan initiated unprovoked by firing with small arms and shelling mortars along the LoC in Shahpur, Kirni and Qasba sectors of Poonch district.

The spokesman said Indian army retaliated befittingly.

Pakistan has violated ceasefire on Thursday for the third consecutive day in these three sectors of the LoC.

Since the beginning of this year Pakistan has been violating with impunity the bilateral ceasefire agreement signed by the two countries in 1999.

In over 3,200 such ceasefire violations by Pakistan since January, 24 civilians were killed and over 100 injured.
