German Ambassador to Pakistan Martin Kobler has visited the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Sialkot and inquired after the health of patients injured by Indian firing along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary, said the military’s media wing on Tuesday.

According to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the German envoy “met injured patients due to Indian state terrorism through continued ceasefire violations (CFVs).”


The visit came amid continuing escalation in ceasefire violations by India, despite calls for restraint.

In 2018, the Indian forces have already carried out more than 335 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the WB. Last year, more than 1,970 ceasefire violations were committed.

Islamabad had also summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh earlier today to condemn the ceasefire violations, which took place on February 19.

Director General (SA & SAARC) Dr Mohammad Faisal condemned the ceasefire violation by the Indian forces in the Khuiratta Sector of Jijot Bahadar village, which claimed the life of an eight-year-old boy Ayan Zahid.

Pakistan Army killed two Indian soldiers, moments after a boy was martyred along the Line of Control on Monday.

“Pakistan Army troops neutralised Indian post which targeted a minor along LOC. Two Indian soldiers killed,” said an ISPR statement.
