LOC was a war zone again last night
Recent efforts by Pakistan for regional peace have been appreciated by all. The unconditional release of the captured Indian pilot won many hearts across the region but it feels like India’s still being a bit of a brat.
Yesterday, Wing commander Abhinandan safely returned to India
The Wing Commander walked to his home country via Wagah border. He was handed over by the Pakistan ranger officials to the Border security force followed by some paperwork.
Though this move by the Prime Minister IK aimed for de-escalation of the tensions between the two neighboring countries but the release of the Indian pilot was followed by increased intensity of unprovoked Indian firing along LOC last night
It is being said that after the release of the pilot, the situation along the LOC intensified. Pakistani and Indian forces fired shells at each other across the LOC and the Kashmiris continued to suffer.
Bloodiest Night in #AzadKashmir

Kashmir also continues to bleed and violence has engulfed the region
Sources state that the Indian firing injured many and damaged the system of electricity and telecommunication.

A large number of civilian casualties have been reported due to Indian firing
Areas of Tatta pani, Jandrot and Nakyal along with the other sectors in Jammu and Kashmir have became a target of heavy Indian firing.
Indian troops undertook firing along #LoC. Exchange of fire in Tatta Pani and Jandrot Sectors.
India deliberately targeted civil population. 2 citizens embraced shahadat, 2 injured incl a woman. #PakArmy gave befitting response by targeting #Indian posts.
PAF and PN are alert.

Even the peace-making efforts of Pakistan have not been appreciated by Indian authorities, instead, the Indian media states that the release of the Indian pilot is a result of the immense diplomatic pressure by India. Pakistan expected that this particular move would help in defusing the tensions built up in the region but the things seem to have gone worse.
Kashmiris on both sides of the LOC continue to suffer. Mutual desire for peace is the solution for this regional chaos and it seems like that the unilateral efforts for peace will remain unfruitful until both sides can actually come together.
