RAWALPINDI – Indian forces on Friday martyred an innocent civilian during unprovoked cross-border firing, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
According to the ISPR, the deceased identified as 19-year-old Inzamam Ameen, who was working at a crush plant at Poonch river bank in Titri when he was martyred by the Indian troops.
Pakistan Army, in retaliatory fire, targetted an Indian post, the statement added.
On Feb 19, the Indian forces in unprovoked ceasefire violations along the LOC in Khuiratta Sector, Jijot Bahadar village, martyred Ayan Zahid, an 8 years old boy.
In a tit-for-tat action, Pakistan Army on Monday destroyed an Indian army post across the Line of Control and killed two soldiers hours after a Pakistani minor boy lost his life.
On Feb 15, the Indian occupation forces also deliberately targeted a school van leaving the children severely traumatized and martyring the driver. The ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.
According to FO, despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations. It said, “In 2018, the Indian forces have carried out more than 335 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the shahadat of 15 innocent civilians and injuries to 65 others”.
