The diplomatic corps and media has reached the Line of Control (LoC), DG ISPR will brief the media and the corps.

They arrived to visit the sectors hit by the Indian unprovoked firing last week.

The DG ISPR, Major General Asif Ghafoor will brief the diplomats and media about the country and will expose India’s false claims, sources said.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal was also accompanying the diplomatic corps.

Dr. Muhammad Faisal, in a tweet, said the Indian side has not joined the diplomatic corps in the visit to LoC.

He said that they have neither provided coordinates of the alleged “launchpads”.

He revealed that the FO had been waiting for a response from Indian High Commission, and remained silent when it was asked to visit the LoC to verify to accusations against Pakistan.

The development came after Maj Gen Ghafoor’s challenge to the Indian army to prove its accusations.

Indian forces had used mortars and artillery to intentionally target civilians in these sectors, which resulted in the martyrdom of five civilians and one Pakistan Army soldier.

The sources said Pakistan did not want a war with India, but if war were imposed, Pakistan would fight it in the same way it did on Feb 27.

Indian forces had used mortars and artillery to intentionally target civilians in these sectors, which resulted in the martyrdom of five civilians and one Pakistan Army soldier.

Nine soldiers of the Indian army were killed and many others injured when Pakistan Army troops effectively responded to the latest Indian ceasefire violations, deliberately targeting civilians, in Jura, Shahkot and Nousehri sectors along the Line of Control, the director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) told on Sunday.

Two bunkers of the Indian army were also destroyed in firing by Pakistani troops.
