UN dismisses Pak’s claim of Indians troops targeting UN military observers




United Nations: The United Nations (UN) has dismissed Pakistan’s claim that the Indian Army targeted UN military observers in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

“This afternoon in Bhimber District, in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, UNMOGIP (United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan) military observers accompanied by Pakistani army escorts heard gunshots in their vicinity. There is no evidence that the UNMOGIP military observers were targeted by the gunfire,” said Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, during a press briefing.

He added that no UN military observer was injured.

Yesterday, the ISPR, Pakistan military’s media wing, claimed that the Indian Army targeted an UNMOGIP vehicle in Khanjar Sector during a ceasefire violation.

According to the ISPR, the vehicle was carrying UNMOGIP Officers Major Emmanual of Philippine and Major Mirko of Croatia on a visit to the Line of Control (LoC) with the UNMOGIP blue flag hoisted as per procedure.
