India is continually violating the Line of Control (LoC) ceasefire agreement and seems to be suffering from war hysteria. In a recent episode of LoC violation, the Indian troops killed 10 civilians and three Pakistani soldiers in Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
Warning India of dire consequences for its actions, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chaired a high-level meeting on Thursday and said that Pakistan will not tolerate India’s ‘deliberate targeting’ of civilians and ambulances.
“We cannot tolerate deliberate targeting of innocent civilians particularly children and women, the ambulances and the civilian transport,” the Prime Minister stated.
He added, “Pakistan has exercised maximum restraint despite the continuing ceasefire violations from the Indian security forces along Line of Control (LoC).”
Despite Pakistan’s numerous attempts to focus International attention on India’s war-mongering behavior, no efforts are made to curb this hysteria.
On Wednesday, Indian troops shelled civilian population along the LoC in AJK, after a daylong silence. The attack started at around 3 am on Wednesday and intensified after sunrise in Neelum Valley. The shells ended up hitting passenger bus, leaving 10 people dead and 21 others seriously injured. When the ambulances arrived to clear the area, the Indian troops shelled again, making rescue operations extremely difficult.
These have been the heaviest civilian killings in a single day over the last 13 years since the time the neighboring countries signed a ceasefire agreement in November 2003.
