Indian Military ceasefire violations seriously injured atleast 3 Pakistani civilians at LoC
ISLAMABAD - A senior Indian diplomat was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday to register Pakistan’s strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) on September 17.
Due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Hotspring and Jandrot Sectors of the LoC, 15-year-old Irum Riaz s/o Muhammad Riaz, 26-year-old Nusrat Kausar w/o Abdul Rauf and 16-year-old Mukheel s/o Muhammad Hussain, residents of Andrala Nar Village, sustained serious injuries, a Foreign Office statement said issued here.
Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was underscored that such senseless acts were in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, and also against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct.
“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,” the FO statement said.
