Pakistan summons senior Indian diplomat over CFVs
By Staff ReporterWednesday – January 13, 2021
According to a press release, due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Nezapir sector of the LoC on January 11, 2021, 10 year old Muhammad Zaheer son of (s/o) Muhammad Rafique, residents of Mohri village, sustained serious injuries.
The Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the working boundary (WB) are continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons.
This year, India has committed 48 CFVs, resulting in serious injuries to three innocent civilians.
Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was underscored that such senseless acts are in clear violation of the 2003 ceasefire understanding, and are also against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct.
These egregious violations of international law reflect consistent Indian attempts to escalate the situation along the LoC and are a threat to regional peace and security.
It was added, by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights’ situation in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
The Indian side was called upon to respect the 2003 ceasefire understanding, investigate this and other such incidents of deliberate CFVs and maintain peace along the LoC and the WB.
The Indian side was urged to allow the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
