Using small arms, automatics and mortars, they targeted military and civilian facilities in nearly a dozen areas of Balakote sector late on Tuesday, defence ministry sources said.
“The Indian positions retaliated effectively. Firing exchanges continued for nearly two hours,” the sources said.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Pakistan Army had resorted to ceasefire violations on the LoC in Rajouri district.
However, except for damages to some civilian houses, no casualty had occurred on the Indian side, the sources added.
