Indian aggression at LoC poses threat to regional peace: AJK president
MUZAFFARABAD: Azad Jammu & Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan has condemned unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces at the Line of Control (LoC), ARY News reported on Wednesday.
“Indian forces are escalating tension on LoC only to detract the world’s attention from the human rights violations in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IOK), he said, adding that Indian acts of aggression at LoC cannot dampen the spirit of Kashmiri people for the freedom of their motherland from Indian occupation.
While expressing sympathies with the families of those martyred, AJK president said that the Indian aggression has threatened the peace of the entire region.
“We paid tribute to the people living along the Line of Control (LoC) for braving Indian aggression with a valiant spirit, AJK president said in a statement.
