Three Pakistan Army soldiers have been killed after violating ceasefire in Uri and Rajouri, according to news agency ANI. The soldiers have been killed in punitive proactive response after ceasefire violations by Pakistan Army in Uri and Rajouri sectors. The Pakistan Army claimed that five Indian soldiers were dead in ceasefire violations along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir but the Indian Army has denied such claims.

The spokesperson of Pakistan Armed Forces, Major General Asif Ghafoor accepted the death of three Pakistani soldiers in a tweet. But he also claimed that five Indian soldiers were also killed and many others were injured. The Indian Army has denied such claims.

The tension between the two countries has escalated to a new level after India revoked article 370 ending the special status of the northern state of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019 Bill has reorganized the state of Jammu and Kashmir into the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir with a legislature, and the Union Territory of Ladakh without a legislature.

The Union Territory of Ladakh will comprise Kargil and Leh districts, and the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir will comprise the remaining territories of the existing state of Jammu and Kashmir.
