The Indian forces along the LoC and the working boundary are continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons. This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations. On July 24, Indian deputy high commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia has also been summoned by Pakistan Foreign Office today to record protest against unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) on Monday and Tuesday. According to the FO spokesperson, Pakistan has strongly protested the violation of ceasefire by India along the LoC. On Monday, in Bagsar Sector along LoC, 12-year-old boy Mohammad Riaz was martyred while 18 year old Zabeeullah sustained serious injuries. On Tuesday, in Hotspring, Jandrot and Banchirian Sectors along the LoC, an innocent civilian woman Jan Bibi was martyred while three civilians Naseem and Parveen Bibi from Hot Spring Sector and Khalid from Banchirian sector sustained serious injuries. Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said the Indian forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons. He said the deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws. The spokesperson said the ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation. He urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement; investigate these and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary. The Indian side should permit UNMOGIP to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions, the spokesman further said.
