RAWALPINDI: Defence attaches from the US, UK, China, Turkey and Indonesia visited the Line of Control (LoC) in Rawalakot Sector of Azad Jammu & Kashmir, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Friday.
During the visit, the defence attaches were briefed on the atrocities committed by Indian forces along the LoC and the deliberate targeting of civilians.
The attaches interacted with the victims of ceasefire violations and gained first-hand knowledge of their suffering.
Dignitaries were also apprised about the activities undertaken by Pakistan Army to provide relief to the population of Azad Jammu & Kashmir.
The heavily militarised LoC, which divides the disputed Himalayan region of Jammu & Kashmir between Pakistan and India, has been witnessing skirmishes and artillery duels.
According to the Foreign Office, Indian forces have carried out more than 335 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the working boundary this year, which resulted in the death of more than 15 innocent civilians and injuries to 65 others.
