ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Indian troops opened indiscriminate and unprovoked firing in Nezapir Sectors of the Line of Control (LoC) on January 11 which resulted in serious injuries to a boy.
The injured 10-year-old Muhammad Zaheer was a resident of Mohri village.
In 2021, India has committed 48 ceasefire violations using artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars, and automatic weapons.
Resultantly, three innocent civilians have suffered injuries as a result of Indian ceasefire violations in 2021.
To register Pakistan’s strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian troops, a senior Indian diplomat was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad on Tuesday.
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.
It was noted that 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 was added that by raising tensions along the LoC and the Working Boundary, 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 Working Boundary.
The Indian side was also 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.
