While there is no official word from the Indian side on the offensive, the Pakistan Foreign Office in Islamabad issued a press statement condemning India for "unprovoked ceasefire violations" on Thursday in the Battal sector and "targeting the civilians".

The Indian Army on Thursday foiled a major infiltration attempt along the Line of Control in Poonch's Balakot sector, killing six terrorists.

He also urged the Indian side to allow the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions. Alert troops engaged the suspected terrorists and fired on them.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has strongly condemned targeting of the school van by Indian forces across the Line of Control.

He prayed for eternal peace to be granted to the departed soul and courage for the victim's bereaved family.

The students thought the vehicle was struck, but the firing had hit the school van's driver named Sajid. "We all started screaming and there was no one to help us".

DG ISPR says Indian unethical and unprofessional approach across the LoC continues terrorising civilians.

In 2018, Indian forces carried out more than 150 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the Working Boundary, resulting in the death of nine innocent civilians, while injuring 40 others.

He said this unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed more than 1970 ceasefire violations.
