Indian and Pakistani troops deployed along the Line of Control in Kashmir exchanged heavy fire, local media reports citing sources in the Indian military.

The alleged ceasefire violation took place in the Sunderbani Sector along Line of Control at around 22:15 (local time), with Pakistani forces firing small arms and using mortars, according to an Indian army source.

“The Indian Army retaliated befittingly,” the source added.

Earlier, Pakistan announced that it had partially closed its airspace for Indian flights until 5 September.

The Pakistani foreign ministry also announced the expulsion of the Indian envoy from the country, adding that Pakistan won’t be sending its envoy to Delhi.

On Monday, India revoked Article 370 of the constitution which protected the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, requiring the mandatory approval of most of the laws adopted by the Indian parliament in the local assembly.

The Indian government plans to split the Ladakh region from Jammu and Kashmir and grant it the status of a union territory, which means it would be directly controlled by the federal government. The remainder of the state will become a second union territory.

However, the Ladakh region will not have its own legislature, unlike Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan has been bleeding India over 70 years sneaking terrorists over the border. The current government has the strongest support of the Indian people to put an end to this rubbish.

Let’s say that there are 4 main terrorism sponsoring states, Pak is one of them, and the most problematic to neutralise.

It really is unfortunate that these two countries can’t resolve these issues that have confronted them for decades.The needless killing of each other for what … ? Does this precede the British colonisation of India and Pakistan.

There was no British colonisation of Pakistan since Pakistan was crated artificially in 1947, before it, it was… India, and same thing for Bangladesh which was part of Pakistan until 1971 when Bangladeshi fought a war of independence (with some Indian support) Kashmir was to be independent as the Maharaja wasn’t into joining both states… Until Paki govt decided to invade. The Maharaja called India for help and Pakis were stopped at the actual LoC (Line of Control). +++ “The needless killing of each other for what … ?” >>> Pakistan started 4 wars on India, India started… None!

Your delusion is clinical. But for sure it was the british who lit this fire, and now the Indian best friends of zionists are at it themselves, feigning to be victims while comitting genocide. They are so kind hearted that a senior minister made his wish to unearth buried muslim women to rape them. Recently a person accused of burning missionary graham staines and his two teenagae sons alive was made a cabinet minister. The thing is fascists of all hues band together because they dont care for decency ir human life but a greedy bloodlust for power at the… Read more »

Ah, I’m not surprised to see you : Turkey is the only country supporting Paki propaganda. C’mon, the genocide accusations again while it’s what your sultan is doing on Turkish Kurds and the national sport in Turkey +++ “and now the Indian best friends of zionists” >>> So it’s your real motivation! I was sure there would be such cräp coming. No surprise India has feelings towards Israel : the most common estimation is that Muslim invasions on India genocided 270 millions Hindus. They see that Muslims want to do the same to Jews, they feel empathy, it’s natural. It… Read more »

kashmir acceded to India on the condition that its small population will be safeguarded through specific constitutional measures. now all the leaders are arrested and all constitutional measures rescinded. it is like making an agreement and breaking it after you get what you want. no wonder it was peres who suggested palestine style settlements in kashmir and thats what they plan to do.

Paki Occupied Kashmir didn’t asked Porkistan to invade! Porkistan snatched and annexed POK and BTW, expelled all the non-muslim population and replaced schools by madrassas in order to create fanatical lunatics to attack India. When it comes to J&K, the Maharaja renounced his monarchy in 1952. Conditions have changed and Porkistan was exploiting the semi-autonomous situation to prop terrorist groups and rigging the institutions through baksheesh. The 1st victims of Paki-backed terrorism are J&K inhabitants, and when it’s not shitlamist militants wrecking havoc, it’s Porkistan army sniping people or shooting mortars across the border. 3 polititians who actually weren’t re-elected… Read more »
