In the morning, the Pakistan army opened fire at Indian troops in Degwar area of Poonch district along the Line of Control (LoC), prompting India to retaliate. Another incident came on September 4 when Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire twice by firing at forward posts along the LoC in Degwar and Maldalyan areas in Poonch and along the International Border (IB) in Arnia sector of Jammu, the report says.

In yet another act of provocation, Pakistani security forces on Wednesday unleashed heavy firing across the LoC, violating the ceasefire agreement between the two countries, news agency ANI reported. While the identity of injured BSF personnel was yet not known, police identified the injured civilians as Khurshid Ahmad and Mohammad Kabir.
