AKHNOOR -- Amid tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad over the surgical strikes across the Line of Control, Pakistan on Saturday violated ceasefire in Pallanwala sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Akhnoor.

The firing started at around 4 A.M. and is underway.

This is the third ceasefire violation in the last 36 hours and comes two days after the Indian Army struck along the Line of Control (LoC) on militant launchpads in a surgical strike.

Pakistani troops earlier on Thursday resorted to firing in Balnoie area of Mendhar sector without any casualty.

Pakistan violated ceasefire earlier on 28 September by opening fire on Indian Army posts along the LoC in Sabzian area of Poonch sector.
