Minors among 51 injured in Indian forces firing in occupied Kashmir
SRINAGAR - In the latest act of state terrorism, at least 50 people including children were injured following the firing of bullets and pellets by Indian forces in Shopian and Kulgam districts of occupied Kashmir.

Health officials of Shopian and Kulgam said that they received 51 people, including an 18-month-old child injured by pellets and bullets in the two districts, reported Kashmir Media Service on Monday.

Medical superintendent of Kulgam District Hospital, Ghulam Muhammad Butt said that they received 15 injured, six with bullet and nine with pellet wounds. One teenager Nouman Ashraf Butt was brought dead to the hospital.

“Of the nine injured by pellets, one was a girl of age 2 years. Another baby girl Hiba Nisar had a pellet injury in one eye,” Butt said.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, also shared picture of 20-month old Hiba, who was also hit by pellets in her eye.

Farooq added that 17 Kashmiris were martyred by Indian forces during the last three days. He also made an urgent appeal for help to stop this genocide in his tweet.

Pakistan's President Arif Alvi responded to the Farooq's tweet stating, "This a very tragic situation. The world should condemn and demand a stoppage on the atrocities being committed on innocent people in Indian occupied Kashmir".

He added, "This has now been going on for decades with increasing intensity. For how long can this continue?"
