Indian forces once again resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation at district headquarters Authmuqam along the Line of Control on Wednesday.

According to district administration, a fifty year old woman Sajjida Bibi has died of Indian shelling.

Firing continued near Line of Control since morning, however, Pak Army responded befittingly and targeted Indian Army’s positions from where firing was being generated.

Soon after the firing, educational institutions were closed and the students sent to their homes safely. Civilian population near LOC was also shifted to safe places.

DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor says Indian Army is continuing its nonprofessional conduct.

In a tweet, he said besides atrocities in Occupied Kashmir, the Indian army violated ceasefire and targeted civil population in Shahkot sector across Line of Control.

He said such acts cannot suppress indigenous freedom struggle of brave Kashmiris in occupied Kashmir.   

AJK President Sardar Masood Khan and Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan have strongly condemned Indian firing and said Indian army continuously violating ceasefire arrangement. 

They said India wants to push civil population back from LOC but our valiant people will not be intimidated by such cowardice acts.

 They lauded Pak army for protecting civilian population from Indian aggression.
