Kashmir: 9 Killed in Gunfight as India-Pakistan Tensions Mount

HeadlineFeb 19, 2019

Nine people, including a civilian, were killed in a gunfight in Pulwama in the contested region of Kashmir Monday. Four Indian soldiers and one policeman were also killed, alongside what police say were three suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed militants. Last week, a car bomb in the Indian-administered region killed as many as 46 Indian soldiers—the deadliest attack on Indian forces in Kashmir since the late 1980s. Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the deadly attack, and India has accused Pakistan of being directly involved in plotting the bombing. Pakistan denies the claim. Both India and Pakistan have recalled top diplomatic officials following the attack.
