ISLAMABAD - Disgraceful Indian Army responds over Pak Army allegations of using cluster bombs at civilians.
The Indian Army on Saturday strongly rejected Pak allegations that it used "cluster ammunition" along the Line of Control (LoC), calling Islamabad's remarks yet another "lie, deceipt and deception".
Responding to tweets by Pakistani officials, the army said, "Pakistan army regularly attempts to push terrorists through infiltrations and opens up with multitude of weapons to assist them."
It said that India, during numerous Directorate of Military Operations-level talks, has maintained the right to respond.
"Such responses are only against military targets and infiltrating terrorists who are aided by Pak Army. Allegations of firing of cluster bombs by India is yet another Pak's lie, deceipt and deception," the army said in a statement.
Earlier, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi in a tweet "strongly condemned" what he said was "blatant use of cluster ammunition" by Indian security forces along the LoC.
"Strongly condemn the blatant use of cluster ammunition by Indian Security Forces targeting innocent civilians along the Line Of Control.
This is clear violation of the Geneva Convention & International Laws," he said in a tweet.
Pakistan Army's spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor also alleged that the Indian Army was using cluster bombs.
