In the continuous exchange of fire and mortar shells at the disputed international border and Line of Control between India and Pakistan the people living in the border villages have been facing hardships. Both the countries are caught in the battle – both politically and militarily, since October 3 this year. The latest escalation in the ceasefire violations at the 192-kilometer border stretch has killed 19 people, including 11 from Pakistan, hundreds have been injured and more than 30,000 people displaced. The latest violation, “worst in a decade” hasn’t come to end yet. The Kashmir Walla recently visited the affected villages along the border in Jammu region, and our photographer Shahid Tantray follows the devastation and life during these skirmishes.
