Pakistan lodges strong protest over Indian ceasefire violations
In a statement, Foreign Office, said that due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces along LoC in Karela Sector, yesterday, 28 year old woman named Madeeha Hafeez, resident of Batla Mathrani village, sustained serious injuries.
It said the Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons. India has so far committed 1487 ceasefire violations resulting in 13 shahadats and serious injuries to 106 innocent civilians during the current year.
Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, the Foreign Office 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. It said these egregious violations of international law reflect consistent Indian attempts to escalate situation along the LoC and are a threat to regional peace and security.
It was added that by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
