ISLAMABAD: Pakistan strongly condemned the extrajudicial killings of three more Kashmiri youth in Pulwama area of the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) Saturday.
Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri stated in a statement that in the intensified state-sponsored terrorism against Kashmiris, Indian occupation forces have martyred six Kashmiris in the past three days.
"It is a matter of grave concern that the draconian military siege, extra-judicial killings, torture in custody, enforced disappearances and incarcerations are continuing unabated in IIOJK. The spate of violence against innocent Kashmiris only betrayed India's frustration over its failure to suppress the just struggle of the Kashmiris for their legitimate right to self-determination," he added.
He stated that the gross and systematic human rights violations perpetrated by the Indian Occupation Forces in the IIOJK warrant investigation by the UN Commission of inquiry as recommended by the OHCHR in its reports of 2018 and 2019.
