ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Wednesday summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner and condemned the unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Baroh and Tandar Sectors on Tuesday.

The firing was resulted in martyrdom of two civilians, including one woman in Barho Sector, a man in Tandar Sector and injuries to six others.

The Director General South Asia and SAARC deplored the deliberate targeting of civilians and termed it contrary to international human rights and humanitarian laws.
