India, Pakistan troops trade fire on Kashmir LoC
Srinagar - XINHUA

 The troops of India and Pakistan Tuesday violated cease-fire agreement and targeted each other's positions on Line of Control (LoC) dividing Kashmir, officials said.
The two sides exchanged fire in Uri sector of frontier Baramulla district, about 140 km northwest of Srinagar city, the summer capital of Indian-controlled Kashmir.
"This morning, the Pakistani posts opposite Uri Sector opened fire on our posts with small arms and automatics without any provocation," a Srinagar based Indian army spokesman said. "The fire being effective against the Indian posts was appropriately responded to."
According to the spokesman, Indian side has not suffered any damage in the exchange.On Saturday an Indian military trooper and a woman were killed in a similar exchange in the sector.
Last month, deadly skirmishes took place between Indian and Pakistani troops posted on the 720 km-long LoC and 198 km international border (IB) in Kashmir. The two sides suffered 21 casualties (nine on Indian side and 12 on Pakistani side) during the stand-off.
The continuous exchange of fire forced 28,000 people living close to IB in Indian-controlled Kashmir to migrate to safer places in wake of heavy firing.
LoC is a de facto border that divides Kashmir into India and Pakistan controlled parts. The LoC on both sides is guarded by army, while IB is guarded by BSF on Indian side and Pakistan Rangers on the other side.
Both New Delhi and Islamabad accuse each other of resorting to unprovoked firings and violating cease-fire agreements. And both sides maintain that their troops gave befitting reply to the other side.
Kashmir, the Himalayan region divided between India and Pakistan is claimed by both in full. Since their independence from Britain, the two countries have fought three wars, two exclusively over Kashmir.
The troops of India and Pakistan intermittently exchange fire on LoC and IB, despite an agreement in 2003 to observe cease-fire. Though some violations have been reported on both sides, the cease- fire however remains in effect.
