J&K Child killed five civilians injured as Pakistan violates ceasefire in Poonch

Sources identified the deceased as Israr Ahmed of Kerni.

However, he said the residents are reluctant to migrate from the affected villages.

According to Pakistan's state-run broadcaster Radio Pakistan, a civilian was killed and four others wounded due to firing from Indian troops.

The Foreign Office, in a statement, alleged that Indian forces resorted to firing in Rukh Chakri and Rawalakot Sectors on September 30 and October 2, killing three civilians and injuring five others, including a woman. Pakistan said over the weekend that two civilians had been killed in firing across the LoC.

Pakistani forces used heavy-calibre, long-range weapons to inflict maximum damage, sparking panic in villages along the LoC as shells landed into residential areas.

Meanwhile, the Indian Army also succeeded in foiling an infiltration bid in Tangdhar sector along the LoC in north Kashmir on Monday morning.

Pakistan violated ceasefire at multiple occasions in September. "A dozen more were injured". Sources said that the Pakistani troops had violated ceasefire on Sunday evening too but had stopped firing at around 9.30 pm on Sunday night. Yasmeen and Tazeem's mother, Sehima Bi and five-year-old sister Zobia, were also injured in the attack.

Officials said they had set up shelters where villagers could shift. "But they are reluctant to leave their homes, farms or their cattle behind", Zargar said.

It is worth mentioning here that Pakistani army has committed a total of 285 violations this year until Aug 1, a major increase from the last year that saw 228 violations altogether.
