11 civilians including six women, four children injured in Indian firing at LOC
RAWALPINDI (92 News) - At least 11 innocent civilians including six women and four children were injured today when the Indian Army resorted to an unprovoked ceasefire violation in Khuiratta Sector along Line of Control (LOC).
According to a statement of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian forces targeted the civil population during a marriage ceremony in Jigjot village with rockets and heavy mortars.
“Deliberately targeting civil population particularly women and children reflects lack of morality, unprofessionalism and utter disregard of human rights by Indian army as well as violation of ceasefire understanding of 2003,” the ISPR added.
On November 13, a Pak army soldier and four civilians were martyred in an indiscriminate fire from Indian forces at the Line of Control (LOC) after four of their security personnel lost their lives during a gunfight with freedom fighters in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
