Will not tolerate targeting of civilians: Pak PM

Srinagar: A day after Indian troops killed 10 civilians in Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK), Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said his country will not tolerate India’s “deliberate targeting” of civilians and ambulances, Dawn reported on Thursday.

“We cannot tolerate deliberate targeting of innocent civilians particularly children and women, ambulances and civilian transport,” Sharif said in a high-level meeting on Thursday, the report said.

“Pakistan has exercised maximum restraint despite the continuing ceasefire violations from the Indian security forces along Line of Control (LoC),” the report quoted him to have said.

A day earlier, Indian troops resumed heavy shelling after a day-long lull and targeted a passenger bus in PaK Lawat area, killing nine people and injuring 11 others.

Indian troops also fired at an ambulance which went into the area for evacuation, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

A total of 10 civilians and three Pakistan Army soldiers were killed and at least 18 others injured in firing by Indian forces yesterday, the report said further.
