Pakistan on Wednesday lodged a strong protest against Indian ceasefire violations by summoning the diplomat to the Foreign Office.

According to the details, Foreign Office summoned Indian Charge d’Affaires to register the protest over ceasefire violation by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry, in a statement, said one innocent civilian was martyred and three other injured in indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Hotspring and Jandrot Sectors of the LoC.

The Spokesperson 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.

He said in 2020, the Indian occupation forces have carried out 3012 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 28 martyrdoms and serious injuries to 253 innocent civilians.

FO Spokesperson 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.

Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry added that 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.
