President of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) Sardar Masood Khan has vehemently condemned the shelling on civilians by Indian occupying forces from across the Line of Control (LoC) in different sectors of Azad Kashmir.
“I condemn in the strongest possible terms the egregious act of aggression that killed at least six civilian, injured several others and caused huge loss to the properties in ‘Azad Kashmir’,” Khan said on Sunday, terming it “a cowardly act of the enemy”.
He said that India had imposed an undeclared war on the liberated territory by pounding over a dozen villages from Noseeri to Nagdar in Neelum valley, Leepa and Khuairatta sectors of Kotli district.
“India is intentionally creating a war-like situation at the Line of Control, and is escalating tensions which may ignite a large-scale war between Pakistan and India at any time,” he said.
Khan warned that if Indian shelling on the civilian population continued, the people would have no option but to “take up arms to counter India’s aggression”.
