Pakistan summoned on Sunday Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia to protest unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces along the Line of Control.
Dr Mohammad Faisal, director general for South Asia & SAARC at the Foreign Office, summoned the Indian deputy high commissioner and condemned the “intentional targeting of civilians” by Indian forces in Jura, Shahkot and Nousheri sectors.
Indian ceasefire violations – we shall defend ourselves. شہادت ہے مطلوب و مقصودِ مومن
نہ مالِ غنیمت نہ کِشور کشائی – I just summoned the Indian Charge d’ affaires and condemned intentional targeting of civilians by Indian occupation forces. #KashmirBleeds
