India lodges strong protest over unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistan along LoC

India has lodged a strong protest over unprovoked ceasefire violations along the Line of Control by Pakistan on Friday. The Ministry of External Affairs summoned the Charge d’Affaires of the High Commission of Pakistan and a strong protest was lodged over unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces, on multiple sectors along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir on 13th of this month, resulting in the death of four innocent civilians and serious injuries to 19 others.

The MEA said India condemns, in the strongest terms, the deliberate targeting of innocent civilians by Pakistani forces. It is highly deplorable that Pakistan chose a festive occasion in India to disrupt peace and perpetrate violence in Jammu and Kashmir through coordinated firing along the length of the LoC using heavy caliber weapons, including artillery and mortar on Indian civilians.

India also strongly protested Pakistan’s continued support to cross border terrorist infiltration into India, including through supporting cover fire provided by Pakistan forces. Pakistan was once again reminded of its bilateral commitment to not allow any territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India in any manner.
