Pakistan on Friday lodged a strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC).

According to the details, Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said Pakistan lodged a protest by summoning the Indian diplomat.

Two innocent civilians were seriously injured in indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in the Baroh Sector of the LoC.

He said the Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars, and automatic weapons.

This year, India has committed 2340 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 18 martyrdoms and serious injuries to 187 innocent civilians.

The Spokesperson said these egregious violations of international law reflect consistent Indian attempts to escalate the situation along the LoC and are a threat to regional peace and security.
