Islamabad: Two women have been seriously injured in unprovoked firing by Indian forces on the Line of Control, while the Foreign Office has summoned a senior Indian diplomat to protest the ceasefire violation.
According to a Foreign Office spokesman, Indian forces opened unprovoked fire in Rakh Chakri and Baro sectors of the LoC, leaving two women seriously injured. A senior Indian diplomat was summoned to the Foreign Office to protest the incident.
The Foreign Office says Indian forces continue to target civilians on the Line of Control, Working Boundary. This year, India violated the ceasefire 1697 times. This year, 14 innocent civilians were martyred and 133 injured in Indian provocations. India's deliberate targeting of innocent civilians is reprehensible.
The spokesperson said that India's provocation is a threat to peace and security in the region. With these moves, India cannot divert the world's attention from the situation in occupied Kashmir. India must ensure implementation of UN Security Council resolutions.
He further added that targeting unarmed civilians is against international law and values. India should abide by the 2003 ceasefire arrangement. The UN military observer mission should be allowed to work on the LOC.
