ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has summoned a meeting of the federal cabinet today to discuss the situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) and the recent ceasefire violations by Indian forces at the Line of Control (LoC).

The prime minister reiterated that Kashmir was an unfinished agenda of the partition of the Subcontinent, adding that the people of occupied Kashmir were struggling for their right to self-determination. The premier would apprise the federal cabinet of details of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session and his meetings with world leaders.

It is also learnt that PM Sharif has decided to take important steps on IoK and recent ceasefire violations at the Line of Control, for which a joint parliamentary session of the Parliament has also been summoned Wednesday.

Earlier, two Pakistani soldiers embraced martyrdom when Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control (LoC) on Thursday morning. The unprovoked firing at the LoC in Kel and Lipa sectors began at 2:30 AM and continued till 8:00 AM, ISPR said.

The unprovoked fire was painted as a surgical strike by senior Indian officials, in a move apparently aimed to satisfy the public.

"India conducted a surgical strike at the Line of Control on Thursday to prevent terrorists from attacking Indian soil," said India's DGMO Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh at a press conference in New Delhi, according to Indian media.

Pakistan rebuffed the claims with the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) saying, "There has been no surgical strike by India, instead there had been cross-border fire initiated and conducted by Indian forces which is an existential phenomenon".

Of late, tensions soared high between the two nuclear-armed adversaries over occupied Kashmir and an attack on Indian army's brigade headquarters in Uri, which left 18 soldiers dead.
