The Pakistan army violated ceasefire for the fourth consecutive day on February 26 shelling forward posts along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, prompting a befitting response from the Indian forces, officials said.

The Pakistani army violated ceasefire even as India conducted a major preemptive strike on Jaish-e-Mohammed's biggest camp early on February 26 to prevent suicide attacks being planned by the Pakistan-based terror group, killing a large number of terrorists and trainers.

Officials said the Pakistan army resorted to small arms firing along the LoC in Nowshera sector early on February 26 but there was no report of any casualty, officials said.

The Pakistani troops resorted to heavy mortar shelling in the forward areas along LoC in Nowshera late on February 25 night as well, inviting strong retaliation from the Indian forces, they said.
