23.09.2017, Pakistan.

Indian troops fired across the frontier territory of Pakistan, which resulted in casualties, Pakistan Army press-service said in a release on September 22, RIA Novosti news agency reports.

Pakistan’s military alleged that Indian military posts in Charwa sector of Sialkot district conducted an unprovoked mortar attack against Pakistan’s territory. In response, Pakistan‘s military opened a fire against these posts.

It should be noted that Indian Media gave a different picture of what happened. Citing their sources in Indian Army they said it was the Pakistan’s military that opened the fire first on the territory of the town of Arnia in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

The ceasefire regime on disputed territories of the state of Kashmir located between India and Pakistan is regularly violated. The conflicting sides are traditionally accusing each other of being responsible for the violations.

The Kashmir conflict has been going on for already 70 years, having started after the division of British India. India and Pakistan are direct sides of the conflict, while China controlling the north-eastern part of Kashmir participates in the conflict indirectly.
