Pakistan Army on Wednesday lodged a protest before military observers from United Nations against 'unprovoked' Indian aggression and firing on civilians from across the Line of Control (LoC).

"United Nations Military Observers at UNMOGIP were invited to GHQ to register a protest over unprovoked ceasefire violations and targeting of civilian population by Indian Army," said a statement issued by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The observers were informed that the Indian army has violated ceasefire agreement on May 10, 13 and 16, added the statement.

"Indian Army used small arms, automatic and heavy calibre weapons, heavy mortars (122 mm) and field artillery in Sabzkot, Baroh, Tandar, Khuiratta, Kot Koterra and Karela Sectors to target Pakistani villages," further added the statement from the military's media wing.

The observers were also told that a civilian was killed and 15 others, including women and children, injured when Indian troops resorted to firing.

UN military observers were informed of the latest situation along the LOC, said ISPR.
