India’s firing at Nikial sector along the Line of Control (LoC) injured two minors in Balakot village.
“Unprovoked firing targeted innocent civilians at LoC Nikial Sec Balakot village injuring children aged 9 and 14 at 2150 hrs yesterday,” Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said in a tweet on Sunday.
The incident comes a day after a 60-year-old woman was killed in firing by Indian forces at Kot Kehtera sector along the LoC.
Army chief General Qamar Bajwa, on his visit to the border last month, termed the violations an attempt to distract Pakistan Army from its fight against terrorism.
