The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has condemned the unprovoked firing by Pakistan, which killed three children and injured eight civilians in Kashmir’s Kerni, Kasaba and Digwar sectors. Expressing concern over Pakistan’s ceasefire violation, MEA issued a summons to Pakistan’s deputy High commissioner. As per a tweet by ANI, MEA released a statement saying, “It was conveyed that such deliberate targeting of civilians was not acceptable and was against humanitarian norms and practice.” The ministry also expressed its disappointment over the violation of Ceasefire Understanding by Pakistan.

In a joint press conference by CRPF and BSF, it was informed that the Army retaliated strongly and effectively to the Pakistani troops. MEA’s stern warning comes after the latest ceasefire violation by Pakistan, on Monday, along the Line of Control (LoC) in Dighwar, Shahpur, Qasba, Kerni and Mandhar sectors which started around 6.30 am and continued till 11.30 am.
