RAWALPINDI (City News) – Two soldiers of Pakistan Army on Wednesday have embraced martyrdom as Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing in Deva Sector along Line of Control (LoC).
According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Sepoy Noorullah and Sepoy Waseem Ali have sacrificed their lives in the mishap for the protection of the motherland.
The Pakistan Army befittingly responded to Indian aggression and silent the guns of the enemy, the military media-wing stated.
Earlier, a senior Indian diplomat was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to register Pakistan’s strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC).
The 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.
This year, India has committed over 2300 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in over 15 shahadats.
Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was underscored that such senseless acts are in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, and are also against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct. 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).
Indian side was called upon to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, investigate this and other such incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations and maintain peace along the LoC and the WB.
The Indian side was also urged to 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.
