The Pakistan Rangers have termed the Indian firing at the Sialkot border a “small-scale war” between the two countries.
“India is not just violating ceasefire but fighting a small-scale war with Pakistan,” Director General Rangers Major General Tahir Javaid Khan told journalists here.
“It appears a political agenda...,” he said.
Gen. Khan claimed that the Indian Border Security Force used small firearms on the working boundary between 2010 and 2014.
“More than 30,000 mortar shells have also been fired during the last four years,” he said, noting such a large amount is not even used in a “full-scale war.”
“On October 6, alone, 51,000 small arms were fired across the boundary, while on October 7, more than 4,000 mortar shells were fired,” he claimed.
