Two children martyred in Indian firing along LoC

  • Three Indian soldiers killed, five injured in retaliatory firing by Pakistan Army

RAWALPINDI – Indian forces on Wednesday resorted unprovoked firing along Lind of Control killing two children a day after Pakistan urged global leader to bar India from its threatening behaviour.

According to ISPR, the enemy forces opened firing targeting civilian populations in Kahuta, Chaffar, Serian and Narakot villages of Rawalkot and Chirikot Sectors.

The ISPR statement said that mortar rounds targeted house of a civilian Sakhi Kayani in village Chaffar in which his two children embraced martyrdom.

Pakistan Army posts gave effective response to Indian aggression.

ISPR said Indian posts at LOC suffered heavy damage intermittent firing continues, as three Indian soldiers were killed and five were seriously injured.

Maleeha Lodhi

Pakistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi while speaking at a debate at UN General Assembly said any aggression or intervention will meet a matching and effective response from the armed forces and people of Pakistan.

She also urged the United Nations and the international community to take urgent action to prevail on India to stop its open threats to use force amid the prevailing tensions between the two countries.

Maleeha Lodhi said India resorted to daily violations of the ceasefire along the LoC to cover up its crimes against the Kashmiri people and to divert world attention from its occupation.

“All I can say to them is: do not underestimate Pakistan’s resolve and capacity to defend itself.”

She said, “India claims, falsely, to have conducted a so-called ‘surgical strike’ across the Line of Control. This claim, and India’s repeated threats to conduct such ‘strikes’ across the LoC, constitute flagrant violations of the UN Charter’s injunction against the use or threat of use of force.”

She further said that this provides Pakistan sufficient reason to respond in an exercise of its right to self-defence.

Ms Lodhi also questioned if Indian leaders were trying to provoke a conflict with Pakistan by making such false claims and blatant threats.

She also urged the world body to take “urgent” action to prevail on India to control its threatening behaviour.
