Unprovoked Indian attack claims lives of three Pakistani women

Ceasefire violations are a frequent feature along the LoC and Working Boundary despite the leadership of Pakistan Rangers and India's Border Security Forces agreeing in November 2017 that the "spirit" of the 2003 Ceasefire Agreement must be revived to protect innocent lives.

In a statement, the military said Pakistani troops Thursday responded to Indian fire on villages in the Sialkot district near the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.

Two civilians and a Border Security Force head constable were killed and three injured on Friday morning after Pakistani troops resumed shelling and firing on forward Indian positions along the worldwide border in Jammu and Kashmir's RS Pura and Samba sector, ANI reported.

Pakistan and India have a long history of bitter relations over Kashmir , a Himalayan territory claimed by both in its entirety.

In a message on Twitter, FO spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said the latest ceasefire violation occurred in Nikial Sector across the Line of Control in Azad Jammu and Kashmir on Jan 20-21.

The FO, apart from today, had summoned India's Deputy High Commissioner Singh on January 15, 18 and 19.

Anwar said one man was wounded past midnight, while a man and a woman were killed and four others were injured during the day.

More than 100 such violations have been carried out by the Pakistan forces on the Line of Control and the International Border so far during 2018.

"The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, worldwide human rights and humanitarian laws", the official said. He alleged that despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations.

India blamed Pakistan for the attack; Pakistan, however, strongly rejected the claim.
