Pakistan summons

Pakistan on Monday summoned the Indian diplomat and registered a strong protest against the targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC).

The Foreign Office (FO) Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri registered a strong protest at the ceasefire violations by Indian forces. The FO said that this year India has committed more than 2820 ceasefire violations.

On Sunday, 11 civilians including six women and four children were injured when the Indian Army resorted to an unprovoked ceasefire violation in the Khuiratta sector along LoC.

The ISPR further added that the troops attacked the wedding ceremony with rockets and heavy mortars injuring 11 people which includes 6 women and 4 children.

Deliberately targeting the civil population particularly women and children reflects a lack of morality, unprofessionalism and utter disregard of human rights by the Indian army as well as the violation of the ceasefire understanding of 2003, ISPR added more.

Earlier on November 13, Indian Army troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violations in Rakhchikri and Khanjar Sectors of Kashmir along the restive Line of Control (LoC) targeting the civilian population.

According to (ISPR), Indian troops had targeted the civil population with rockets and mortars in Tari Band and Samahni villages.

“Pakistan Army troops responded effectively to Indian firing,” the ISPR said.

ISPR had said in a statement that one citizen embraced martyrdom, three civilians including two women had received injuries.
