Pakistan troops open fire again

The Centre has reacted strongly to the ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the Line of Control today.
“Ceasefire violations by Pakistan are unacceptable,” said Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma. “We’ve conveyed our concerns to Pakistan,” he added.
Earlier in the day Pakistani troops targetted Nowshera sector in Jammu and Kashmir and fired six mortar shells.
Pakistani forces resorted to intermittent firing of mortar shells in Jhangarh area of Nowshera sector in Rajouri district for 45 minutes from 0640 hours, defence spokesman Lt. Col S D Goswami said.
Indian troops exercised restraint and did not retaliate, he said, adding there was no loss of life or damage to property in the shelling.

The questions in my mind are

  • Why are we not counter attacking them ?
  • Shouldn't we attack when they fire shells at us ?
  • Till what time will this continue ?
