The Indian Army has launched attacks on Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) camps situated on Pakistani territory opposite the Tangdhar sector, killing at least 10 people.

The attack comes hours after the Indian military stated that two soldiers and one civilian had been killed as a result of an attack by the Pakistanis on an area close to the Line of Control.

Tensions between India and Pakistan in the disputed region escalated with renewed vigour back in August, when New Delhi revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s autonomy and boosted its military presence in the region.

Following the move, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan accused his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi of violating human rights and suspended diplomatic and trade relations with New Delhi.

The Kashmir issue dates to 1947 when both countries became independent from the British Empire and both claimed the region as their territory, leading to several armed conflicts between the two nations.
