Pakistan on Tuesday lodged a strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control by summoning the top diplomat.

Foreign office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri, in his statement, said that due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Nezapir Sectors of the LoC, a 10-year-old Muhammad Zaheer s/o Muhammad Rafique, residents of Mohri village, sustained serious injuries.

Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri 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 48 ceasefire violations, resulting in serious injuries to 3 innocent civilians.

He condemned the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was 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.

FO 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.

He added that India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
