Since September this year, Pakistan has carried off over 2000 ceasefire violations killing over 20 soldiers and civilians across the state. “Jammu And Kashmir: 13 civilians killed in Azad Kashmir due to Ceasefire violators by Indian troops and in retaliation Two Soldiers, Civilian Killed In Ceasefire Violation By Pakistan Troops In J&K”, tweeted Lord Nazir Ahmed, Member, House of Lords, United Kingdom.
