Pakistan Says India Fired at UN Observers in Kashmir

Pakistan Says India Fired at UN Observers in Kashmir

On May 17, Pakistan Army had also lodged a protest with the United Nations military observers against "unprovoked" Indian firing on civilians from across the Line of Control.

On Tuesday, the Army announced that it had launched "punitive fire assaults" on May 9 and destroyed several Pakistani posts which were aiding terrorists in infiltration and released a video as proof.

"Clear visibility of editing marks in the video", they said.

Radio Pakistan reported that Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman said Pakistan will give a "befitting response" to "any aggression by the enemy".

Any "military move by India would be created to both project strength and avoid an escalation of conflict, and would have a short-term negative impact on financial markets", they added.

Among those he killed were eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos; Georgina Callander, 18; John Atkinson, 26; Kelly Brewster, 32; and Olivia Campbell, 15.

The video was posted on Twitter by Pakistan military Spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor, who claimed it was shot on May 13.

During the meeting, the commanders of the two forces "discussed various issues including recent unprovoked firing in Arnia Sector and other routine issues related to border management", he said. Quoting sources, a Pakistan television channel also said all of PAF's forward operating bases were made fully operational. Incidentally, Pakistan Army had also termed the Indian video as false and claimed that no Pakistani post was targeted. Pakistan never accepts that they lost all the wars against India. The action was taken two days after the Pakistani Army beheaded two Indian troopers reportedly. "This is part of our overall strategy to counter terrorism", Major General Ashok Narula, head of army's public information wing, informed media persons on Tuesday afternoon.

India said no airspace violations had taken place.

Even in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, India-Pakistan enmity has intensified to a degree wherein the recent ICJ snub is being read as an affront to its nationalist dignity in Pakistan.

The army was taking pre-emptive and measured actions to counter terrorism in Kashmir and disengage Pakistani posts supporting infiltration attempts, said Defence minister Arun Jaitley. It comes roughly three weeks after New Delhi blamed Pakistani military personnel for killing and mutilating Indian soldiers in the disputed region of Kashmir, which is claimed in full and ruled in part by both countries.
