Pakistan ArmyIndian army deliberately targets UN Military Observers’ vehicle at LoC

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Indian army resorted to unprovoked fire in the Chirikot Sector of the Line of Control (LoC) at 1045 hours on December 18, 2020, deliberately targeting a United Nations vehicle with two Military Observers on board, enroute to interact with ceasefire violation victims in Polas Village in Chirikot Sector.

It must be noted that the UN vehicles are clearly recognizable even from long distances due to their distinct make and type and clearly visible markings.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that while the vehicle was damaged, the two United Nations Military Observers (UNMOs) luckily remained unharmed.

They were safely rescued and evacuated by Pakistan army to Rawalakot.

“Such illegal and unlawful acts, against all established international norms, signify mal-intent of the Indian army to target not only innocent civilians residing along the Line of Control but UN Peace Keepers as well,” the ISPR said.

“This act only goes to show the Indian army’s complete disregard to principles enshrined in the UN Charter.”

The ISPR said that it is indeed a new low for the Indian army.

It said that Pakistan army stands in solidarity with UNMOGIP Officials and appreciates the selfless services rendered by all members of UNMOGIP in discharge of their UN-mandated duties.
