India lodges strong protest with Pakistan over unprovoked ceasefire violations in J&K
India also strongly protested Pakistan’s continued support to cross border terrorist infiltration
India on Saturday summoned Pakistan High Commission’s Charge d’Affaires and lodged a strong protest over unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces on multiple sectors along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir on November 13, resulting in the death of four innocent civilians and serious injuries to 19 others.
“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 J&K through coordinated firing along the length of the LoC using heavy caliber weapons, including artillery and mortar on Indian civilians,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement
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.
