Rawalpindi (July 17, 2017): The Director General Military Operations (DGMO) of Pakistan Army strongly protested the deliberate targeting of a Pakistan Army vehicle by Indian troops with his Indian counterpart, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza called up the Indian DGMO on a hotline to lodge a protest with him over the attack on a Pakistan army vehicle by Indian forces along the Line of Control (LoC).
“Such acts have the potential to escalate which then will be extremely detrimental to peace and stability.”
“While we don’t want to go down the path where we start choking each other’s supply lines; however, any such recurrence will invoke more strong and effective measures from Pakistan’s side,” the ISPR quoted Mirza as saying.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), four Pakistani soldiers were martyred on Sunday after firing from the Indian side caused the vehicle to plunge into Neelum River .
Another soldier and a civilian passer-by suffered injuries too in the incident.
