Indian Chargé dˊAffaires summoned to register Pakistan’s protest against Indian CFVs at LOC

Pakistan on Thursday, summoned Indian Chargé dˊAffaires to lodge strong protest against ceasefire violations (CFVs) by Indian forces along Line of Control (LoC).

According to Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), Indian diplomat was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today to register Pakistan’s strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) on 25th November 2020, resulting one civilian casualty.

The development comes as 33-year old Ansar s/o Muhammad Ashraf, resident of Garhi village, embraced shahadat as a result if indiscriminate and unprovoked cross-border shelling by Indian troops in Bagsar Sector of the LoC.

Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons.

As per details, India has committed 2840 ceasefire violations to date this year, resulting in 27 civilian casualties and serious injuries to another 245 innocent civilians on the Pakistani side.

Pakistan has urged India to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding and allow the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.

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. It was added that by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK), said MoFA.
