Army officer, three soldiers martyred in Pakistan firing on LoC in Rajouri

The senator said hearts of Kashmiri people beat with Pakistan and they had expressed it at many occasions.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also warned on Monday that the Army will give a befitting reply to Pakistan, a sentiment echoed by two other Union Ministers.

Violence between India and Pakistan over Kashmir have increased along the border in the Jammu region over the past month.

For the first time, the Indian Army has also said that the firing was not limited only to small arms or mortars but also to missiles.

The deceased Indian soldiers are: Captain Kapil Kundu, 22, Rifleman Ramavatar, 28, Rifleman Subham Singh, 22 and Havilder Roshan Lal, 42. He said the Indian forces have so far carried out more than 190 ceasefire violations this year, resulting in the shahadat of 13 innocent civilians.

Israeli authorities say such demolitions carry out court rulings against unauthorized building by Palestinians. Israel and the USA , he said, sought to "liquidate the Palestinian national project".

Following the killing of an Indian Army Captain along with three other Army jawans in a ceasefire violation by the Pakistani Army, all 84 schools situated in the Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir have been closed for next three days.

As a matter of policy, Pakistan resorts to high-voltage actions around February 5 - which it observes as Kashmir Solidarity Day - each year to keep its propaganda machine going to impress the separatist and Islamist elements in the Kashmir valley. In a statement, the Foreign Office spokesperson urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement for maintenance of peace and tranquility on the LoC and the Working Boundary. He also called Pakistan "latkhor" (addicted to being beaten).

There were as many as 860 ceasefire violations along the LoC and another 120 along the IB in 2017, the highest-ever such tally in over 15 years. Firing was on at both places when reports last came in. We have been responding appropriately and retaliating in equal measure.

Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir government today batted strongly for the resumption of a "peace and reconciliation process" between India and Pakistan as the issue of repeated ceasefire violations by the neighbouring country rocked the state Assembly.
