Two-year-old martyred as India targets citizens along LoC

A two-year-old boy martyred along the Line of Control (LoC) in Azad Kashmir, as the Indian forces continued the cross-border aggression, said the ISPR (Inter-Services Public Relations).

Four citizens were also injured by Indian shelling during the last 24 hours, as the ISPR said the Indian army in total disregard to the ceasefire agreement and international conventions initiated provoked aggression while deliberately targeting the civilian population.

These violations were carried out in Baroh, Dhunial, Rakhchikri and Chirikot sectors as the Indians used mortars and heavy weapons, it added.

According to the ISPR, the child, Muhammad Haseeb, embraced martyrdom in the Dhunial Sector. The injured included a woman and a 72-year-old man in the Baroh, Rakhchikri and Chirikot sectors. They have been transported to the nearest healthcare facilities for medical treatment.

The Pakistan Army effectively responded and targeted those Indian posts which initiated the fire, the ISPR said.

The Indian forces have been violating the ceasefire agreement for the last several days. Last week, the ordinary citizens were targeted in Nikial, Sharda, Dhudnial and Shahkot sectors, resulting in injuries to several innocent citizens.

At that time, the ISPR said that India had so far committed 708 ceasefire violations in the current year.
