Indian soldiers targeted a school van along the Line of Control (LoC) and martyred its driver in the Battal sector on Thursday, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
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.
