ISLAMABAD – The Foreign Office (FO) summoned Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria to protest the unprovoked ceasefire violations by Indian forces.

The acting foreign secretary condemned the unprovoked and continuing ceasefire violations along the LoC and Working Boundary.  A letter of protest was also submitted to the Indian envoy over the incident.

The letter maintained that targeting civilians intentionally violates human values and international laws. It also called for interrogation of ceasefire violations.

Indian forces frequently conduct cross-border violations along with Working Boundary as well as in Kashmir across the Line of Control, resulting in the deaths of innocent civilians.

Earlier today, at least four Pakistanis including a woman and three children were martyred when Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing on a civilian population across the Working Boundary in Sialkot.

Statistically, in 2018, 219 innocent civilians, including 112 women and children, have either been martyred or injured because of targeted Indian ceasefire violations.
