Pakistan’s violation of ceasefire troubles the children at schools, yet again.

Time and again Pakistan has been violating ceasefire at the Line of Control and it is the sixth time this year that Pakistan fired mortar shells at India; at an Indian school, precisely.

On the 18th of July, Pakistan’s military fired along the Line of Control (LoC), in a village called Naushera, in Jammu & Kashmir. The children at the school that was targeted by Pakistan had been stuck for over 4 hours inside.

However, the police and other officials retaliated soon after, and a few bullet proof trucks were arranged to the rescue, that ferried the kids to their homes safely. Although no casualties were reported, the trail of scars cannot be overlooked.

On this matter, Mehbooba Mufti Sayeed, the chief minister, said that the deteriorating camaraderie within the two nations have to be stabilised and the countries have to work together towards curbing terrorism and towards welfare of the states, instead of firing at each other.

However, the conditions in Jammu & Kashmir are only getting worse. The violations of ceasefires in the past few days have killed militants, sarpanch and a number of innocent children.
