ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – The Indian Chargé d’Affaires was summoned to Foreign Office today (Friday) to register Pakistan’s strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation Forces along the Line of Control, resulting in martyrdom of four innocent civilians and serious injuries to twelve others.

Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was 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.

According to the FO, It was added that by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK).

The Indian side was called upon to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, investigate this and other such incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations and maintain peace along the LoC and the WB.

The Indian side was also urged to allow the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.
