The ISPR press release said Indian forces carried out "unprovoked" ceasefire violations between Wednesday and Thursday, and "targeted civilian population along Working Boundary in village [of] Kundan Pur, Chaprar, Sialkot sector overnight".

The Indian diplomat was also summoned yesterday over Indian firing across the Working Boundary in Sialkot, Punjab.

India's foreign ministry condemned what it called "continued and unprecedented cease-fire violation by Pakistan, which has caused loss of lives and properties".

Faisal urged India to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement, investigate the ceasefire violations and instruct the forces to respect the ceasefire in letter to spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.

The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, global human rights and humanitarian laws. It also asked India to allow the U.N. Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan to play its mandated role in accordance with Security Council resolutions.
