Pakistan lodges protest with India over ceasefire violations

The two nuclear-armed rivals declared a ceasefire in 2003, to maintain peace and tranquility along the LoC and Working Boundary.

In January, Indian forces violated the ceasefire as they fired across Jandrot, Nikyal, Baroh and Khanjar areas. Indian aggression continued unabated as the violation was reported five times.

According to Pakistan Army, Indian forces committed at least 178 ceasefire violations along the LoC and Working Boundary last year, killing 19 civilians and injuring 80 others.
