Islamabad: Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday termed as "naked aggression" the "unprovoked firing" by India across the LoC that resulted in the death of four civilians and three soldiers and said India has failed to comprehend the gravity of the situation.

In a statement, Sharif "condemned the Indian firing across the Line of Control (LoC) which targeted a passenger bus and also paid tribute to the soldiers killed in a separate firing incident across the LoC as tension mounted between the two countries after heavy exchanges."

 

"Despite our exercise of maximum restraint in the wake of continuing naked Indian aggression along LoC resulting in the death of innocent civilians including children and women, India has failed to comprehend the gravity of the situation, he said.

Sharif "condemned in the strongest words the unprovoked firing by Indian security forces on a civil bus carryinginnocent civilians along LoC near Neelum valley."

He said no responsible state can permit targeting innocent civilians in general and ambulances carrying the injured in particular.

 

"In fact, India is trying to divert the attention of the international community from the grave human rights violations and atrocities being committed by the Indian security forces in Kashmir," he said.

He said that Pakistan will never abandon their Kashmiri brethren and will continue to support them in their just and legitimate freedom struggle for their right to self-determination in accordance with the UNSC Resolutions.
