Indian forces martyr civilian in unprovoked cross-border firing: ISPR

Unprovoked cross-border firing by Indian forces claimed life of a 19-year-old civilian, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Friday.
According to the ISPR, 19-year-old Inzamam Ameen was working at a crush plant in Titri when he was martyred by the Indian troops.
Pakistan Army, in retaliatory fire, targetted an Indian post, the statement added.
Earlier this week on Monday, Indian firing along the Line of Control killed an eight-year-old boy in Jajot village. Pakistan Army’s retaliatory action killed two Indian soldiers, the ISPR said.
On February 15, Indian forces deployed along the Line of Control targetted a school van and martyred its driver in the Battal sector.
Skirmishes along the Line of Control have seen an increase after the righ-wing government of Narendra Modi took power in India.
In 2018, Indian forces carried out more than 150 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary in less than a month.
In 2017, Indian forces committed more than 1900 ceasefire violations.
