Acting president AJK, Shah Ghulam Qadir, expressed serious concern over unabated ceasefire violations by Indian troops across the LoC and called upon the United Nations and global human rights organisations to take notice of the situation.

"The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, global human rights and humanitarian laws". So far, following the surgical strikes in September 2016, the LoC in areas south of the Pir Panjal ranges witnessed heavy exchange of fire between the two armies.

Pakistan said the Indian Army gunned down two of its soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on Thursday. Though there has been no evacuation of civilians from any place in view of the latest shelling, sources said the district administration and police had been keeping vigil.

The ceasefire violation was initiated at around 8:45 a.m.

Should 'bump stocks' be banned in the US?
Other Florida high school students also walked out in solidarity with the Parkland students on Tuesday to call for gun reforms. Since then, DOJ and ATF officials have said publicly and privately that banning bump stocks could not be achieved unilaterally.

An official said that In the shelling two army men have received injuries and have been shifted to military hospital Udhampur for treatment. Two mortar shells fell near Nowshera town, one near Bypass bridge and another in a nullah beside Government Degree College, causing panic in the area.

As tension flared along the LoC, the Indian side too reported "heavy mortar shelling in Sunderban sector" in Jammu and Kashmir that sparked a forest fire. "It is a worrisome situation as interior areas are being targeted".

To a question about belligerent statements by Indian Army Chief, the spokesman said these reflect the unfortunate jingoistic mindset in India.
