DG ISPR Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor on Friday morning also tweeted a picture of the injured victims being treated.

The Acting Foreign Secretary urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and Working Boundary. As per the latest reports, the Indian Army is retaliating strongly to the unprovoked firing by Pakistan.

Pakistani troops had earlier violated ceasefire on the global border in the Jammu district consecutively for four days. Gen. Sahir Shamshad Mirza during the DGMO level talks.

The firing, he was told, took place in Phulian sector on the Pakistani side of the de facto border and that also three persons including a woman were injured. "One soldier was injured in the incident", an Army official said.
