On Thursday, Indian forces fired across the Line of Control, targeting Pakistani check-posts. Pakistan border forces responded, killing five Indian soldiers and losing three of its own.
Tensions have been high between India and Pakistan ever since the former revoked Article 370 of the Indian constitution.
India illegally annexed Kashmir and bifurcated the occupied territory into two different units. Pakistan rejected the Indian move and said that it would protest against the decision at every forum.
On Thursday, thousands of protesters gathered outside the Indian high commission in London to protest against India’s atrocities in Kashmir.
