Army kills five Indian soldiers after school van targeted along LoC.
  Thursday 15 February, 2018
Army kills five Indian soldiers after school van targeted along LoC.

Hours after a school van was targeted in Battal sector along the Line of Control (LoC), Pakistani forces retaliated and destroyed an Indian Army check post, killing five soldiers and injuring several others on Thursday.

A statement issued by Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the Pakistani troops targeted the same check post from where the school van was attacked in Tatta Pani (hot spring) sector.

“Indian terrorism against innocent citizens shall be responded befittingly,” added the media wing of Pakistani military.

Driver of the school bus was martyred in the Indian attack.

The Indian aggression was castigated by the top military spokesperson Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor.

He wrote on Twitter: “Indian unethical and unprofessional approach across the LoC continues terrorising civilians.”

The DG ISPR reiterated that such attacks are a violation of the Geneva Convention and a clear violation of the 2003 ceasefire agreement between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.

He also tweeted a video of a local schoolgirl who described the horror as an eyewitness to the attack.

Pakistan has repeatedly condemned increasing ceasefire violations by Indian forces due to which, several civilians have lost their lives.

Islamabad has been urging New Delhi to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, investigate the incidents of ceasefire violations, instruct Indian forces to respect the ceasefire in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC.

However, the violation of the truce has still been continuing.
