UNITED NATIONS: The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) will meet on Wednesday (today) to discuss the alarming human rights situation in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS), meeting of the UNSC has been scheduled for the second time in less than six months on the situation of the occupied Kashmir. The council has last discussed the Kashmir dispute in August, 2019.
The UN Military Observer Group is likely to brief the members of the Security Council on the rapidly deteriorating situation along the Line of Control.
On Jan 13, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism had martyred three Kashmiri youth in Pulwama district, occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The youth were killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation in Gulshanpora area of Tral in the district.
Meanwhile, people in occupied Kashmir continue to face miseries of military siege and lockdown. Amid shivering cold, the residents complain of acute shortage of daily commodities particularly in the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region.
In December last year, at the closed session of the United Nations Security Council in New York, China had expressed its serious concerns over the deteriorating situation in the Indian occupied Kashmir.
China had noted that foreign minister of Pakistan had written a letter to the Security Council to take action against the disturbing development across Line of Control (LoC) which created threat to peace and security.
Which included more than three thousand ceasefire violations, targeting of 300 civilians including children and women, partial removal of the fence of the LoC by India in five sectors, deployment of the Brahmos Missile and Spike Missile for use across the LoC and conduct of numerous missile tests since August.
