ISLAMABAD - Taking a strong exception to India's aggression, Pakistan has handed over a dossier to the United Nations Environment Program, pleading to declare India an eco-terrorist for its recent alleged surgical strike.

The dossier was presented by Advisor to Prime Minister Malik Amin Aslam at the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan for Indian Air Force' targeting of pine trees in Balakot area on 26th of last month.

According to the document, Indian military aircraft dropped their payload in a 'reserve' forest before being whisked away by the Pakistan Air Force.

The documents highlights that the act is in violation of the Articles 35(3) and 55(1) of Protocol 1 (Additional Protocol) of the Geneva Convention of August 12 - 1949 that prohibits warfare that may cause widespread, long term and severe damage to the natural environment.
