The Pakistan army violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Uri sector and has now carried on to Anwas Bhandar, Lam in Nowshera sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday. 

Some livestock has been killed during the firing, however, no loss of life has yet been reported. 

The Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing on Indian posts along the LoC in the Baramulla district of north Kashmir around 11.50 am, an Army official said.

Heavy firings are still underway. No casualties have been reported so far. More details are awaited. 

On February 22, the Border Security Force (BSF) said that Pakistan restores to incessant firing across the border because they don't want India to have a peaceful atmosphere.

"Pakistan doesn't want India to have a peaceful atmosphere. This is why they do such violations. There was a ceasefire violation yesterday too," Sonali Mishra, Inspector General of BSF said.
