New York Times: India Claims ‘Surgical Strikes’ Across Line of Control in Kashmir
NEW DELHI — India announced on Thursday that it had carried out early morning “surgical strikes” on terrorist camps in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir, a step that risks escalating the conflict between the two nuclear powers.
However, Pakistan denied that a cross-border strike had taken place, saying that Indian troops had fired small arms across the Line of Control, killing two soldiers and injuring nine.

The official warned that Pakistan could use tactical nuclear weapons in self-defense if India initiates a war.
