Pakistan condemns unprovoked ceasefire violations by India

Jawwad/Mustafa – October 02, 2019

The Foreign Office summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia again in Islamabad on Wednesday to condemn the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control.

The recent indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by Indian Army in Nezapir and Bagsar Sectors of LoC resulted in martyrdom of an old lady while, three others civilians including a lady sustained serious injuries.

Director General South Asia and SAARC Dr Muhammad Faisal said the Indian occupation forces along the LoC and working boundary have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars, and automatic weapons, which still continues.

The Spokesperson said this unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations.

He said the deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson said ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.

The spokesperson 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.

He urged that the Indian side should permit UNMOGIP to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.
