"Post our warning to Pakistan Army not to target civilian areas, the overall situation along LoC remains relatively calm.

A similar sentiment was also echoed by the Pakistan army on Tuesday which said that situation along the line of control remained relatively calm barring firing in Hot Spring Sector by the Indian soldiers.
"Pakistan Army troops effectively replied to the fire by Indian outposts," the Pakistan army claimed.
The Indian army reiterated that all actions taken by Indian defence forces are targeted against terrorists and terrorist infrastructure, away from civilian areas to avoid civilian casualties. It also added that the forces are ready to retaliate in case of any misadventure by the Pakistan army.
