ISLAMABAD: Acting Foreign Secretary summoned Indian High Commissioner and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary today.

The firing, which continues in Pukhlian, Cahprar, Harpal, Charwah and Shakargarh Sectors, led to martyrdom of four innocent members of the family of Noor Hussain in village Khanoor besides injuries to ten other.

The Indian forces along the Line of Control and the Working boundary are continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons.

Indian forces have so far carried out more than 1050 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary this year, resulting in the martyrdom of 28 innocent civilians, while injuring 117 others.

India side was told that deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.

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

The Acting Foreign Secretary urged India to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate all incidents of ceasefire violations; and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.

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