RAWALPINDI (92 News) – A citizen was injured in unprovoked firing in Khuiratta sector along the Line of Control (LoC) on Monday. According to a press release issued by the ISPR, Indian Army troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation in Khuiratta sector along LoC and deliberately targeted civilian population. Due to the indiscriminate fire of automatics at a civil house in Jijot village, an innocent citizen sustained serious injuries. The Injured was evacuated to a nearby health facility and provided with necessary medical care. Meanwhile, a senior Indian diplomat was summoned to Foreign Office today and a strong protest was lodged over the ceasefire violations (CFVs) by the Indian occupation forces in Khuiratta Sector along the Line of Control (LoC). According to Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Aisha Farooqui, due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces, 37 years old Muhammad Shafi, resident of Jijot village, sustained serious injuries. The spokesperson said the Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons. In 2020, India has so far committed 1081 ceasefire violations. Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, the spokesperson 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. She said 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. Aisha Farooqui said Indian occupation forces display complete disregard for human rights by repeated shelling and firing resulting in a large number of civilian shahadats and injuries.
