MUZAFFARABAD, Aug 15: Five people died in firing along the de facto border in disputed Kashmir on Thursday, the Pakistani military and local officials said, as tensions between nuclear-armed rivals Islamabad and New Delhi soar over the Himalayan region.
Skirmishes are frequent across the so-called Line of Control (LoC), but the latest deaths in two separate incidents come after Pakistan warned it was ready to meet any Indian aggression over Kashmir.
"In efforts to divert attention from precarious situation in IOJ&K (Indian-held Kashmir),Indian Army increases firing along LOC. Three Pakistani soldiers embraced shahadat. Pakistan Army responded effectively," the Pakistani military said in a statement.    -AFP
