Indian military confirmed on Thursday that it had carried out strikes along the unofficial border that divides the disputed territory on Wednesday night.
On the other hand, Pakistan’s military said two of its soldiers had been killed in the ‘cross-border fire’ while Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned what he called India’s ‘naked aggression’.
In a televised interview, the minister rejected Indian claims that it had conducted military surgical strikes along its de facto border with Pakistan in Kashmir last night.
He further clarified that if India continued to violate a ceasefire agreement with its nuclear-armed neighbour then Pakistan would also strike back with full force.
