Two Pak Army soldiers among four martyred in Indian unprovoked firing along LoC

ISLAMABAD: Director General Military Operation (DGMO) Pakistan Army has conveyed to his Indian counterpart that continued deliberate targeting of innocent civilians along the Line of Control (LoC) lately in Nezapir, Chirikot and Battal sectors are highly unprofessional and unethical.
During an unscheduled Pak-India DGMO Hotline contact, DGMO Pak Army said that such provocations also causing loss of innocent civilian lives were potentially dangerous to invoke an unbearable response, according to an Inter Services Public Relations press release issued here Saturday.
Earlier this week, Indian army targeted civilian population near Kakuta Village in Chirikot Sector, martyring Mehmooda Begum (75 years).
A week earlier, Pakistan Rangers and Border Security Force (BSF) held its 44th meeting in New Delhi and discussed border tension.
“There has been a sincere endeavor from both the Forces to encourage the local commanders at junior level to mutually resolve the minor issues, related to border management at post, company and battalion level,” a statement by the ISPR said.
“It was also discussed that CFVs and unprovoked firing results in loss of innocent lives. At many occasions, women and children also become the victims. To overcome this ordeal, both border guarding forces need to revive the spirit of 2003 Cease Fire agreement,” it added.
