Two citizens martyred, 11 injured in Indian cluster toy bomb attack in Neelum Valley
On Saturday, two citizens were martyred while 11 others injured in a cluster toy bomb attack by India in the Neelum Valley. According to the ISPR, the Indian army uses cluster ammunition along LOC, deliberately targeting civilian population. This is violation of Geneva Convention and international humanitarian law. The Indian army on night 30th / 31st July targeted innocent citizens including women and children in Neelum Valley through artillery using cluster ammunition. Resultantly, two civilians, including a four-year-old boy, were martyred while 11 got critically injured. According to the ISPR, because of severe impact on non combatants, use of cluster ammunition is prohibited under Convention on Cluster Ammunition. This blatant Indian aggression against all international norms exposes true character of Indian army and their moral standing. It’s time for international community to take notice of this Indian blatant violation of international laws on use of cluster ammunition targeting innocent citizens.
