"Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked small arms and automatic weapons firing on Indian posts along LoC in Bhimber gali (BG) sector of Poonch district around 1000 hours", a Defence spokesman said.
Army troops retaliated and the exchanges were continuing till last reports came from the spot, he said, adding a jawan was injured in the firing.
This is the fifth ceasefire violation in the past five days.
Earlier, Pakistani Rangers resorted to heavy firing with mortar shells, small arms and automatic weapons on five BoPs and civilian areas along the IB in Arnia-R S Pura areas in Jammu district from 2145 hours late last night," a BSF officer said here.
BSF troops guarding the borderline retaliated to the Pakistani firing which resulted in night-long exchanges.

The fresh violation comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday accused Pakistan of indulging in a proxy war killing innocent people in India.
