Shelling along the disputed border between Pakistan and India killed six civilians, and wounded an additional 30 people, officials from the two sides said on Friday (September 22), in the latest confrontation between the two nuclear-armed countries.

Pakistan’s military said six civilians were killed and 26 wounded. Indian Police officials in Jammu said the ceasefire was violated by Pakistani forces, who injured four civilians on the Indian side.

The Pakistani military took a group of journalists to Sialkot, around a 3 hour drive from Lahore, to show them the damage and the injured who had been shifted to a military hospital in Sialkot.

The survivors recalled how their loved ones were killed and wounded in the attack.

The firing took place across the frontier separating Pakistan’s Punjab province from Indian-administered Kashmir’s Jammu region, and most of the casualties were reported on the Pakistani side.

Both countries claim Kashmir, and have fought two of their three wars over the Himalayan region, which they have disputed since partition and independence from British colonial rule in 1947. Both sides have previously accused each of violating the ceasefire and of beheading soldiers in the past.
