The UN Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) team visited areas in Charwah, Chaprar and Pukhlian sectors on the International Border near Sialkot on Monday and Tuesday, the officials said.

The visit was made after Pakistan on October 9 lodged a protest with the UNMOGIP over the alleged firing from across the border and requested UN team to visit the areas.

According to officials, UN observers met the villagers, witnessed and gathered a first-hand account of the damage caused to human lives and properties due to firing.
The team also visited the Combined Military Hospital in Sialkot and met injured civilians.
Pakistan says at least 12 citizens have been killed and 64 injured due to firing.
