Pakistan violated ceasefire on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district resorting to unprovoked, intense shelling and firing, defence sources said.

The Pakistan army initiated the violation late on Tuesday, June 16 along the LoC in Naugam sector.

Indian intelligence warned of possible attacks

"They used small arms and mortars to target Indian positions. Indian Army retaliated befittingly," sources said. Pakistan also violated ceasefire in Tangdhar sector of the same district earlier on Tuesday.

Heavy firing exchanges continued for several hours between the two sides in Tangdhar and Naugam sectors. There are no reports of casualties on the Indian side so far.
