ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday has condemned Indian forces attack on School children bus along the Line of Control (LoC) in Battal sector.
Foreign office spokesperson, Mohammad Faisal summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner Mr. J.P. Singh today and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control on 15 February 2018 in Battal Sector.
“The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws. The ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation,” the press release stated.
