The Pakistani side claims that Indian border guards opened fire. In total, the battle on the border lasted more than 2 hours. At the same time, Indian losses have not yet been reported.
The Pakistani military says that "the Indian side allows itself to violate the ceasefire agreements that were signed in 1999":
The Indian military is provocative. Fire was opened on the positions of our border guards and civilian infrastructure, and a battle ensued.
According to the latest data, both countries are transferring additional forces and assets to the area of armed conflict.
