Pakistan Summons Indian Envoy over Ceasefire Violation

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Friday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner over continuous ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC).

Pakistan Foreign Office summoned Mr JP Singh and lodged a strong protest over the deaths of innocent civilians in Indian aggression on LoC.

According to a statement issued by Pakistan’s Foreign Office, the Indian occupation forces used heavy automatic weapons and rockets on March 1 in Kotli/Jandrot and Chirikot Sectors, resulting in the Shahadat of innocent civilian Muhammad Nazir while also injuring a woman identified as Shamim Akhtar.

“Despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations,” it lamented.

The statement says Indian forces carried out more than 400 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary in 2018, killing 19 innocent civilians and injuries to 69 others.

“This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations. The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.”
