Earlier, the ISPR in a statement on Saturday said that the Indian army used cluster ammunition along the Line of Control (LoC) to target civilian population in clear violation of Geneva Convention and international humanitarian law.
According to the military’s media wing, the Indian army on the night of July 30 and July 31targeted innocent citizens including women and children in Neelum Valley through artillery using cluster ammunition.
“Two civilians including a 4-year-old boy died and 11 others were critically injured,” the statement added.
Because of severe impact on non-combatants, use of cluster ammunition is prohibited under convention on cluster ammunition.
The ISPR said this blatant Indian aggression against all international norms exposes true character of Indian Army and their moral standing.
It’s time for international community to take notice of this Indian blatant violation of international laws on use of cluster ammunition targeting innocent citizens, the statement added.
