Indian troops unprovoked ceasefire violation along LOC targeting the civil population with automatics and heavy mortars in Hotspring and Rakhchikri Sectors.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), an 11-year-old girl was martyred and four other civilians including two children got injured as a result of Indian firing.

“Pakistan Army troops responded effectively to Indian firing,” the military’s media wing said.

The latest ceasefire breach followed on the heels of another such incident on Sept 9 when Indian forces opened fire in the Bedori sector from across the Line of Control (LoC), resulting in the martyrdom of a Pakistan Army soldier.

After the incident, Pakistan summoned the Indian Charge d’Affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today to register Pakistan’s strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC).

The Indian diplomat has been summoned by the Foreign Office (FO) over the ceasefire violations (CFVs) by Indian troops along LoC on the night between September 11 and 12, resulting in the martyrdom of one girl and serious injuries to four innocent civilians.

The FO spokesperson said in a statement, “Due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Hotspring and Rakhchikri Sectors of the LoC, 10-year old Iqra Qamrez d/o Muhammad Qamrez, resident of Village Dera Sahib Zadian embraced shahadat while 16-year-old Muhammad Iqrar s/o Muhammad Qamrez; 75-year-old Motia Begum w/o Muhammad Zaman, residents of Village Dera Sahib Zadian; 8-year-old Khwaar Ahmed s/o Saif Ullah; and 40-year-old Murtaza Khan s/o Saif Ullah, residents of Village Degwar, sustained serious injuries.”

“This year, India has committed 2225 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 18 martyrdom and serious injuries to 176 innocent civilians,” added the spokesperson.

The FO condemned the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces.
