Srinagar : Pakistan is in no mood to halt unprovoked tensions across Line of Control (LoC) as its troops violated ceasefire for one more time along the LoC in three areas of Noushera sector in Rajouri district.

"Pakistan troops resorted to unprovoked firing in three areas of Noushera Rajouri district from 05:15 hours today," Defence Spokesman Col Manish Mehta said.

The troops attacked the civilian area with mortar bombs and also aimed Indian Army posts with gun firing. This was the fifth ceasefire violation in less than 24 hours along LoC.
