Pakistan summons Indian envoy to protest ceasefire violation at LoC

  • FO says this year, India has committed 2,580 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 19 martyrdoms and serious injuries to 199 innocent civilians
30 Oct 2020

(Karachi) A senior Indian diplomat has been summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday to register protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation Forces at the Line of Control (LoC) that resulted in serious injuries to two innocent civilians, a statement issued by Foreign Office said.

As per details, Indian troops resorted to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing in Nezapir and Rakhchikri Sectors resulting in injuries to 22-year-old Rukhsana Shaheen, a resident of Kirni village and 36-year-old Muhammad Azam, resident of Akhori village.

The FO stated that the Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons. "This year, India has committed 2,580 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 19 shahadats and serious injuries to 199 innocent civilians," the statement added.

The foreign office maintained that the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces is in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding. "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," it stated.

"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 FO mentioned that the Indian side had been urged to allow the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.
