Jammu: There was cross-border firing first in Goutrian forward belt last evening and later in Mankote-Mendhar belt along LoC late last night. Army troops guarding the borderline took positions and fired back, they said. 
 
There was no causality or injury to anyone in the firing, they said. 
 
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had yesterday asked Pakistan to respect the ceasefire, saying guns were no solution to any issue.
 
Reacting to the unprovoked firing by Pakistani Army that resulted in killing of three civilians in Uri sector of North Kashmir on Tuesday, Omar had said, "...We also have guns and mortars. If we also start firing, where will this stop?" 
 
Pakistan has violated the ceasefire 23 times in the past two months. 
 
One October 7 and 4th, Pakistan troops had fired on forward posts along the International Border (IB) in Kharwa and Chachwal area in Samba sector. 
 
On October 1, Pakistani troops had fired at Indian posts and Chachwal forward village along International Border (IB) in Samba sector of Jammu and Kashmir in which a couple was injured. 
 
The repeated firing incidents have triggered panic in border hamlets.
