Pakistan summoned the Indian diplomat on Thursday to lodge a strong protest against the ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC).

According to the details, the Indian Chargé d´Affaires was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today to register the protest.

Pakistan Foreign Ministry while condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, underscored that such senseless acts are in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, and are also against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct.

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. It was added that by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJ&K).

The Indian side was called upon to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, investigate this and other such incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations and maintain peace along the LoC and the WB. The Indian side was also urged to allow the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.

The Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons. This year, India has committed 2840 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 27 shahadats and serious injuries to 245 innocent civilians.
