Army defuses mortar shells at the LoC


Once again displaying extreme levels of courage and bravery in the face of state-sponsored terrorism from across the border, Army personnel defused nine mortar shells fired by the Pakistan Army along the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday.

The live mortar shells of 120mm were safely defused in Sandote, Basoni and Balakote village of the Balakote Sector in Mendhar sub-division of Poonch district.

The Army located the shells just a few days after Pakistan violated cease-fire in Poonch, among the many regions in Jammu and Kashmir where they have been attempting to de-stabilise peace and security.
