Three Pakistanis injured in Indian firing along LoC: ISPR
SIALKOT - Indian forces once again committed ceasefire violation along the Working Boundary in Sialkot's Zafarwal sector on Thursday, injuring three innocent Pakistani civilians in the unprovoked attack.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR),  Pakistan Army targetted an Indian post, killing one Indian army soldier and injuring two.

"The post was neutralised," added military's media wing.

Ceasefire violations are frequent along the Line of Control (LoC) despite the fact that Pakistan Rangers and India's Border Security Forces agreed in November 2017 that the "spirit" of a 2003 ceasefire agreement must be revived to protect innocent lives.

Director general of the Disaster Management Authority Zaheeruddin Qureshi detailed that until June 2017, unprovoked firing by Indian forces across the LoC had taken 832 lives while 3,000 had been injured and 3,300 houses damaged.

The writer is a civil servant.
