2019-08-09 India-Pakistan
Heavy clashes reported between Indian, Pakistani forces in Kashmir
[ALMASDARNEWS] Indian and Pak troops deployed along the Line of Control in Kashmire 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 Pak forces firing small arms and using mortars, according to an Indian army source.

"The Indian Army retaliated befittingly," the source added.

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

The Pak foreign ministry also announced the expulsion of the Indian envoy from the country, adding that Pakistain 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 Kashmire, 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 Kashmire 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.

a lie repeated often enough remains a lie...
the Ladakh region will not have its own legislature, unlike Jammu and Kashmire.
