In a major escalation of tensions in South Asia, India has carried out airstrikes inside Pakistan for the first time in years. India said the raid targeted a camp of the militant separatist group Jaish-e-Mohammed, as tensions flare in the Indian-administered region of Kashmir. India has also conducted four ground raids on Kashmiri separatist leaders. India has said they killed “a very large number” of militants, but Pakistan has said there are no casualties from the attack. The New York Times reports the air raids mark the first time Indian aircraft had crossed the Kashmir Line of Control to strike in decades. The air raid follows a recent spate of violence in Kashmir. Earlier this month, a car bombing killed scores of Indian soldiers, and a gun fight killed both Indian and Jaish-e-Mohammed forces last week.
