Pakistan has lodged a strong protest with India

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has lodged a strong protest with India over its recent ceasefire violations on the line of control which resulted in the martyrdom of three civilians and serious injuries to eight others in Nezapir Sector on Tuesday, Radio Pakistan reported.

Director General South Asia & SAARC Mohammad Faisal summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces.

Mohammad Faisal urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.

He urged that the Indian side should permit UNMOGIP to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.

He said the Indian occupation forces have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars, and automatic weapons along the line of control and the working boundary. The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.
