Over 2312 ceasefire violations committed by Indian forces in 2018
It is worth mentioning here that the Indian forces have carried out more than 2312 ceasefire violations in 2018 along the LoC and the Working Boundary, resulting in the martyrdom of Pakistan army personnel as well as several civilians.
Pakistan has constantly been asking India to respect the 2003 ceasefire agreement and bar its forces from violating it; however, no positive initiative was taken by India as yet.
