Schools closed after heavy firing from Pakistan Army

The Jammu and Kashmir government was forced to close more than two dozen schools along the Line of Control (LoC) after the armies of India and Pakistan pounded each other’s locations in Chenab.

On Tuesday morning, the district administration in Rajouri, Poonch and other adjoining places lying close to the LoC had to, once again, shut nearly a dozen schools. Many others along the five-kilometer radius from the LoC are likely to be shut indefinitely by evening.
