India, Pakistan accuse each other of cease fire violations; targeting civilians

Published

on

Pakistan says that Indian Army again resorted to ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) wounding as many as six civilians according to the military wing of Pakistan – ISPR.

The report says that Pakistan responded effectively to the Indian firing and added that the Indian Army has committed 1,643 ceasefire violations in 2020 so far.

In another tweet, the ISPR said that five civilians including an 11-year-old girl and a woman got injured due to ceasefire violation by India in Khuiratta Sector near LoC. He said that Pakistan soldiers responded effectively and targeted those Indian post which opened fire.

On June 25, the Indian army had resorted to unprovoked fire at civilian population along the LoC, leaving a woman critically injured. On June 21, one civilian was killed and two others were injured as Indian soldiers initiated a truce breach in Hajipur and Bedori sectors along LoC, says the report from Pakistan.

Earlier, Indian media reported the death of an Indian soldier who was killed in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the Nowshera sector of Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

“Havildar Sambur Gurung was a brave, highly motivated and sincere soldier. The nation will always remain indebted to him for his supreme sacrifice and devotion to duty,” Lt Col Devender Anand, defence spokesperson, said in the statement.

India recently registered a strong protest with Pakistan over more than 2,400 unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces along the Line of Control (LoC) that have killed 14 Indians. “Till June this year, 14 Indian nationals have been killed and 88 more have been injured in more than 2,432 unprovoked ceasefire violations carried out by the Pakistan forces,” Indian media quoted a source.

India has consistently blamed Pakistan army of providing covering fire to help terrorists attempting to sneak across the LoC to carry out attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

As ties deteriorated between India and Pakistan after the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, soldiers from both sides have repeatedly exchanged fire and involved in cross border shelling.
