Pakistan Calls Emergency Meeting After Indian Strikes in Kashmir

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif called for an emergency cabinet meeting on September 30 after India had claimed a number of air strikes along the de-facto border between the two countries.

The Pakistani military comirms that two soldiers were killed in clashes with Indian troops and announced a “forceful response” if there operations are repeated. in the recently released statement, the Pakistani Foreign Ministry blamed India for “deliberately” escalating tensions.

India says that the operation took place against militants that were planning to carry out attacks on cities in Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir. Unconfirmed reports say that some villages along the border are being evacuated. This escalation comes after 18 Indian soldiers were killed in an attack by militants on a base outside of Srinagar, the capital of Indian-administerd Kashmir about two weeks ago.

Kashmir is a Muslim-majority region that has been disputed between India and Pakistan since 1947.
