Pakistan condemns ceasefire violations by India at LoC
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan has strongly condemned unprovoked firing by Indian forces at Line of Control (LoC) in which three people including an Army official were martyred, and seven injured.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria took to Twitter on Thursday and issued a statement after unprovoked Indian shelling across the LoC at Nezapir, Kayani and Sabzkot sectors caused the martyrdom of a soldier and two civilians on Wednesday.

In India's deliberate targeting, three minors including 12-year-old Kasad, 9-year-old Haseeb and Umair, and two elders were injured.

Nafees Zakaria further said that Pakistan Army gave a befitting response to the attack by Indian troops.

“Response destroyed Indian posts firing on Pakistani posts/civilians. 5 Indian soldiers killed many injured. Indian guns silent due to effective engagement,” according to the ISPR.
