India cross-border firing kills six Pakistani civilians

The Pakistani military Friday said six people have been killed and over two dozen wounded in firing by Indian troops, in the latest cross-border violence between the nuclear -armed neighbours.

The incident occurred within the last 24 hours near the frontier dividing Indian-held Kashmir from Pakistan ’ s Punjab province , known as the working boundary , Pakistani officials said.

“ Indian brutality on World Peace Day martyred 6 innocent Pakistanis, injured 26 along working boundary in Chappar /Harpal/ Charwa Sector, ”

Major General Asif Ghafoor , spokesman of the country ’ s armed forces, said on Twitter.
The violence coincided with a war of words between the arch rivals at the United Nations in New York .

During a speech to the general assembly earlier this week Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi accused India of unleashing “ massive and indiscriminate force ” in the disputed region of Kashmir and called for an international investigation .

India fired back at the remarks and accused Islamabad of harbouring militants , labelling the country “ terroristan”.
