Indian military faced massive embarrassment after their third nuclear-capable missile test ended in failure. The country’s army fired Agni-III missile which crashed into the sea in Odisha as missile deviated from its flight path and the mission team had to terminate it, according to the army sources. Experts believe that the failure could be due to the metallurgical defects.
The Indian Army used cluster munitions along Line of Control (LOC) to target civilians, violating the Geneva Convention and international laws, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). As a result of bombardment by cluster munitions, at least two civilians – including a four-year-old boy – were martyred and 11 were injured. The attack took place on the night of July 30/31.
