KOTLI: At least three citizens on Thursday sustained severe wounds as Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing in Battal, Jandrot and Tatta Pani sectors.
According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), Pakistan Army gave befitting response to the firing, targeting check posts of the Indian Army.
Clashes between the two forces in Kashmir largely stopped after a 2003 ceasefire but exchanges of fire have been more common over the past couple of years.
The international bodies have continued to urge both countries to resolve their disputes through dialogue.
Meanwhile, Director General (SA & SAARC), Dr. Mohammad Faisal on Thursday summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner, J.P. Singh and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces which killed 2 people and injured 5 others.
The Director General urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding; investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC. NNI/INP
