RAWALPINDI: A girl was martyred and four others injured after Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Tatta Pani and Rakhchakri sectors on Sunday.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), an 11-year-old girl was martyred and four other civilians including two children sustained injuries as a result of Indian firing.
“Pakistan Army troops responded effectively to Indian firing,” the military’s media wing said.
This year, India has committed over 2,193 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 18 martyrdoms and serious injuries to over 168 innocent civilians.
Earlier on August 05, an 18-year-old girl embraced martyrdom, and as many as six civilians including two women were injured in unprovoked Indian firing along the Line of Control (LoC).
According to ISPR, the Indian army troops initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation along LOC targeting the civil population in Hot Spring Sector.
An 18 years old girl, a resident of Fatehpur village embraced martyrdom while six innocent people including two women and two girls got injured in Fatehpur and Tahi villages, ISPR said.
Pakistan had summoned a senior Indian diplomat to register its strong protest over ceasefire violations by Indian forces along with the Line of Control (LoC).
Last month, DG ISPR Maj General Babr Iftikhar had said that despite the Covid-19 pandemic and UN secretary-general appeal, Indian forces have intensified ceasefire violations targeting the civilian population.
“Pakistan Army always gives a befitting response to Indian violation but being a professional army we only target their military posts,” he said.
