Indian soldiers in Kashmir

A Pakistani soldier was killed and another was injured Sunday when Indian troops attacked a military outpost on the de facto border between the two countries on Kashmir, said a Pakistani military source.

The shooting continued after the Indian raid across the Line of Control that marks the border in the area of ​​Haji Pir, 80 km north of Islamabad, said the source.

Indian troops crossed the line and "physically assaulted the checkpoint called Sawan Patra," the Pakistani military said in a statement.

"The Pakistan Army successfully replied to this attack. A Pakistani soldier took martyrdom, while another was seriously injured," he added.

Indian troops withdrew, leaving behind a gun and a knife, but the shooting continued, said this source.

Kashmir, inhabited by a Muslim majority Himalayan region is claimed in full by both India and by Pakistan, although each of these countries control only part of this territory. It was the cause of two of the three wars that pitted these neighboring states since independence from Britain in 1947.
