Pakistan violated ceasefire in the Poonch sector on Tuesday afternoon. Pakistani Army had earlier requested Indian Army to maintain ceasefire along the LoC. Pakistan made the ceasefire request over diplomatic visits in the LoC area

Days after the Indian Army conducted artillery strikes on terror launchpads in PoK to destroy terrorist installations, the Pakistan Army requested the Indian Army through established channel of communication that no ceasefire violations should to be undertaken as journalists were visiting the LoC.

However, the Pakistani Army resorted to violating ceasefire and schoolchildren were left stranded in their schools at the Line of Control (LoC) due to the firing. This was even after Indian Army chose to respect the request made by Pakistani Army.

There were major protests in Muzaffarabad in PoK against the Pakistan government with people clashing with security personnel and raising slogans for freedom. This happened on a day when the Pakistani Army took diplomats and journalists to the LoC in PoK.

At least two civilians were injured on Tuesday as Pakistan Army resorted to heavy shelling along the LOC in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Indian Army on Sunday destroyed four terror launchpads opposite the Tangdhar and Keran sectors in Jammu and Kashmir in retaliatory action. The counter-offensive resulted in the deaths of 6-7 terrorists and some Pakistani military personnel as well.

Pakistan however refused to acknowledge the damages caused to terror outfits and took foreign diplomats posted in Islamabad to the areas to show them the civilian localities that were destroyed and damaged in the shelling by Indian Army.

A team of foreign diplomats were taken to Neelum Valley who visited the areas that came under Indian fire.

"We take the Diplomatic Corps to LoC today. Claims by Indian Army Chief remain just that", said Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal.

In a major counter-offensive after Pakistan's unprovoked firing, the Indian Army carried out heavy artillery strikes on Sunday, targeting four terror camps and several Pakistani military positions in Neelam Valley in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
