Pakistan has strongly condemned the extrajudicial killings of five more Kashmiri youth in Baramulla and Srinagar districts of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) in the last three days.

In a press statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ spokesperson said that the Indian occupation army has intensified extra-judicial killings of the Kashmiris.

More than 100 Kashmiris have been martyred this year alone, the statement added. 

Enforced disappearance and incarceration of senior Kashmiri Hurriyat leadership in IIOJK, among other things, is a matter of grave concern, the statement said. 

The spokesperson noted that the spate of violence against innocent Kashmiris only portrays India’s frustration over its failure to suppress the just and legitimate struggle of the Kashmiris.

The gross and systematic human rights violations perpetrated by the Indian occupation forces warrant investigation by the UN, as recommended by the OHCHR in its Kashmir reports of 2018 and 2019, he said. 

The FO spokesperson further called upon the international community to hold India accountable for the grave human rights violations of the Kashmiri people, and work for peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
