NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — On September 29, India’s military said that it had carried out surgical strikes against suspected positions of terrorists in the disputed areas of Kashmir region under Pakistani control.
It is believed that another 100 militants are waiting to cross the Pakistani border into India.
Kashmir has been disputed between India and Pakistan since the partition of India in 1947. The two countries have gone through three wars over the region, but the conflict has not been resolved.
The recent escalation of violence across the India-Pakistan border came after 19 Indian soldiers died as a result of the September 18 attack by armed militants on a base outside of Srinagar, the capital of India-administered Kashmir.
