New Delhi (Sputnik): India and Pakistan continue to violate ceasefire along the Line of Control in their ongoing Kashmir conflict. In June, New Delhi accused Islamabad of violating the ceasefire over 2,000 times this year, while the latter blamed India for engaging in cross-border firefights 957 times during the same period.

Three civilians have sustained injuries in heavy mortar shelling between Indian and Pakistani forces along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kupwara, a town in Jammu and Kashmir, on Friday morning.

According to India, Pakistan resorted to an unprovoked ceasefire violation on Thursday along the LoC in Mendhar and Balakote sectors. The Indian Army said that it retaliated as it saw fit.

India and Pakistan keep accusing each other of violating the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir. This year, several civilians and army personnel have lost their lives in cross-border exchanges of fire between the two countries.
